WASHINGTON (AP) - Tax relief for
Americans was held hostage yesterday
as senators, fearful their favorite bills
were about to die in the closing days of
the 95th Congress, tried to tie their
legislation to the tax-cut bill.
Congressional leaders expressed
doubt that a planned parliamentary
maneuver would succeed in its aim of
barring non-tax amendments from
Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Congress
might have to abandon plans to adjourn
for the year on Saturday.
BECAUSE OF the political appeal of
a bug tax cut less than a month before
November elections, it would be
premature to predict that Congress will
quit without passing the tax bill.
Before the tax bill can be passed,
senators must find a way to trim the
measure, which now totals nearly $30
billion, to fit the budget ceiling set by
Congress. And some of the most
controversial items, such as taxes on
capital gains, have yet to be
Once the bill is passed by the Senate,
it will go to a conference committee
with the House, which will reconcile
differences between the Senate
measure and the $16.3 billion tax cut
voted by the House.
WITH ADJOURNMENT of Congress
near, senators are looking for safe bills
to which to attack such measures as the
Humphrey-Hawkins full employment
bill, legislation to control rising hospital
costs and a measure that would require
periodic review - and possibly appeal
- of most federal programs and such
"tax expenditures" as interest and
deductions and child care credits.
Sponsors reason that is their favorite
projects can be added to the politically
popular tax bill, they have a good
chance of getting them into law.
"We can't permit this tax bill to be
held hostage for every idea that
somebody hopes can get a majority
vote in the Senate," said Sen. Russell
Long, (D-La.), chairman of the Senate
Finance Committee and floor manager
of the tax measure.
"It makes one suspect that those who
are doing it pressing non-tax
amendments aren't interested in
passing the tax-cut bill," he added.
Sen. Edmund Muskie, (D-Maine),
sponsor of the "sunset" measure that
would require periodic review of
federal programs and tax breaks, said
he has "tried the nice-guy route" of not
tying his bill to something else.
"I have tried for three years to get a

of the tax amendments themselves are
every bit as controversial as the non-
"This is no place to do it," replied
Assistant Republican Leader Ted
Stevens of Alaska"The people deserve
a tax cut" and such non-tax matters
threaten the bill, he said.
Trying to add such things as "sunset"
and Humphrey-Hawkins to the tax bill
insures that one controversy would be
heaped on another. For example,
conservatives vow a full-scale filibuster
against Humphrey-Hawkins, which
sets a goal of reducing unemployment
to 4 per cent by 1983.
