Ford
vetoes
foreign
aid kbill
WASHINGTON ()y - Presi-
dent Ford accused Congress of
seeking to illegally restrain
presidential authority to con-
duct foreign policy as he vetoed
a $4-billion foreign aid authori-
zation bill yesterday.
He said the measure con-
tained unprecedented and un-
constitutional restrictions.
CONGRESS overstepped its
constitutional role in approving
the bill and attempted to be-
come a "co-administrator" in
foreign policy decisions, Ford
said.
It was Ford's 49th veto. The
bill, which passed by a 250-185
margin in the House and a 51-
35 vote in the Senate, did not
appear to have sufficient back-
ing to muster the required to-
thirds vote needed to override
a veto.
The iltaih'ried funds for
I scal 197 and would are pro-
vded some $3 billion for for-
eign military aid and credit
s-'tes, including 8$22 illiin fr
Israel and $750 million fr
Egypt
IN A LFNiTIIY message to
Congress, Ford objected to pro-
visions granting Congress broad
controls over foreign arms
sales and veto nower over funds
for countries that engage in ra-
cial or religians discrimination
'-T nst Ameri'n contractors
or that 'olate internitional hu-
int rights standards.
In vetoing the bill, Ford said
he was acting "as any presi-
dent could and must to retain
the ability to function as the
foreign policy leader and
spokesman of the nation."
lie said the United States
must have a foreign policy that
is "certain, clear and consist-
ent." The bill "represents an
unacceptable attempt by Con-
gress to manage the diplomatic
relations of the United States"
lie said.

restrictions that he said violat-
ed the separation of executive
and legislative powers.
He raised these objections:
-Imposition of a $9-billion
ceiling on U. S. weapons sales
in any one year and veto pow-
er by Congress over specific
weapons sales would limit U. S.
ability to respond to legitimate
defense needs of friends and al-
lies. It also would put U. S.
industry at a competitive disad-
vantage with foreign arms sup-
pliers.
--Sanctions against nations
for discrimination and human
rights violations would be an
"awkward and ineffective de-
vice" to prevent such policies
and would ignore important and
complex policy considerations.
Ford called such restrictions
counterproductive.
