HOUSE: TO FUND APPALACHIAN HIGHWAY

By a vote of 238-186, the House kept $148.5 million in HR 2942 (above) for completing an Appalachian Regional Commission interstate in West Virginia. House Republicans caused the vote as part of their campaign to spotlight pork barrel for members of both parties in bills moving through the Democratic-led Congress. Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., is a prime mover behind the Appalachian highway funding.

A yes vote was to spend the $148.5 million.

By a vote of 61-38, the Senate approved the conference report on legislation (HR 2508) authorizing $25.3 billion in foreign military and economic aid in fiscal 1992-1993. The bill provides limited funding of U.N. family planning, and requires U.S. goods to be shipped on more costly U.S.-flag vessels, among other disputed provisions. A yes vote was to pass the bill.
