WASHINGTON (AP) — The House on Thursday temporarily scuttled a $12 billion tax increase and other parts of a Democratic def icit-reduction bill, insisting that con gressional and White House negotia tors First be given a chance to produce a plan for attacking the government’s debt. Immediately after losing a 217- 203 vote, Speaker Jim Wright, D- Texas, served notice that the House will have to face the issue again — but without an attached welfare- overhaul provision. He acknowl edged the welfare section, which has nothing to do with reducing the def icit, caused several Democrats to de sert on the vote. But welfare was only part of the problem, insisted R ep. nob Michel of Illinois, the Republican leader. “What the members have attempted to express here is (to) give this bipar tisan negotiating team (representing Congress and the White House) a chance to come up with a deficit plan," Michel said. By the vote. House members sim ply refused to consider the Demo cratic bill, since the procedures un der which they were op offered no realistic chance wi the tax or welfare sections. That forced the House Committee, which the leaden; controls, to reconvene and lap new procedures under which tkl would be considered. Wright insisted the deficit: tiations should not stop the! from considering its own defn duction plan, most of wh written by the Ways and Ifaj Committee before the stock crash. Most of the new iaxburdenv:J come f rom corporations and iipl income individuals. Theprmuiyl the bill affecting the largest r,;J of individuals would extendtluj pil ing 3 percent tax on t service for three years. The bill includes $2.51 spending reductions — sobkI them would have only aone vcrl feet on the deficit — and iiM the House Appropriations Co J tee to find other cuts in tniliian J domestic programs totaling ai $8.5 billion. Senate approves be on cigarette smokin§ on domestic flights ( bV) wa\ f in jrzmA 7/1 rr« WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Thursday approved a ban on cigarette smoking on domestic airline flights of 90 minutes or less, a compromise that averted an attempt to kill the language by tobacco-state lawmakers. The restrictions, approved by voice vote, would cover an estimated 70 percent of all U.S. flights, accord ing to the Federal Aviation Adminis tration and would last for two years. The ban is part of an $ 1 1.1 billion transportation appropriations bill for this year that would also allow states to raise speed limits to 65 mph on about 7,000 miles of rural high ways. The overall legislation was ap proved by a vote of 84-10. Before the measure is sent to the White House, senators will have to reach a compromise version with the Hd where a smoking ban forfligiaj two hours or less has alrai^ approved. The Senate then began cos ering a separate bill that woud quire airlines to issue moult'| ports on delayed and flights, lost luggage and othti^ tomer service problems. By voice vote, senators apj an amendment to the measurCf would require drug and alcoW ing for airline, railroadandti industry employees. Lawmakers have been com about drug and alcohol abuseij since indications arose that i may have been a factor ini uary’s collision of aConrailk tive and an Amtrak commutflj near Baltimore, in which 1 were killed and 175 injured Market draws 'second wii making third-largest gain NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street regained a measure of its lost vitality Thursday, drawing a second wind that blew the Dow Jones industrial average up more than 90 points in its third-largest gain ever.
