lWUU.'

The committee, conducting its review
of the federal budget in grueling, day-
and-night sessions for over four days,
kept close to Reagan's mark in calling
for multibillion-dollar cuts in welfare,,
jobless, food stamp and some Social
Security benefits.
It also backed the president's call to
abolish the $3.6 billion public service
jobs program next year and endorsed
his recommended revision of the
federal pay system, at a savings
estimated at $3.7 billion.
BUT IT BACKED away from a
recommendation to slow projected in-
creases in cost-of-living benefits for
Social Security recipients after Reagan
rejected the idea in a meeting in the
Capitol.
Technically, the committee was
voting on guidelines to require the other
committees of Congress to apportion
the spending cuts among the programs
they control.
But it was clear from the debate that
committee members felt they were
debating the fate of specific programs.
THE COMMITTEE voted even
deeper cuts than Reagan asked: an ad-
ditional $3 billion, by eliminating the
strategic petroleum reserve; $300
million in Medicare; $98 million by
merging community development and
urban development grant programs;
and $41 million by eliminating the sub-
sidized housing program.

The committee voted to restore some
of Reagan's cuts in these programs:
$653 million in programs for the han-
dicapped, elementary and secondary
education, and youth employment; $224
million for child and maternal
nutrition; $110 million for the Export-
Import Bank; $60 million for black
lung; and $25 million for Vietnam
veterans' health.
The committee's biggest departure
from the Reagan program came when
it called for requiring major refiners to
contribute oil to the Strategic
Petroleum Reserve. The government
would pay the firms 10 percent a year
for 11 years for the oil, as opposed to the
current system under which the gover-
nment purchases the oil directly from
producing nations.
IN GENERAL, the committee relied
on support of both Republicans and
Democrats to back the cuts Reagan
wanted.
But on several occasions, the GOP
used its new majority in the Senate to
push through cuts in popular social
programs over the solid opposition of
Democrats.
Democratic efforts to restore some of
the reductions in Social Security, public
service jobs, government jobs, urban
aid and nutrition programs failed
narrowly in the four days of voting.
