*Tax plan
threatens
NAFTA
WASHINGTON (AP) - Faced
vth new worries about-the North
American Free Trade Agreement,
President Clinton tried yesterday to
workaround congressional objections
to his proposed $2.5 billion tax hike.
"There are still some practical
things to work out," Clinton said of
the plan to replace lost money with
increased fees on international airline
and cruise tickets, rail and truck fees.
* Some conservative House Repub-
licans are threatening to.withdraw
support unless tax plans are dropped.
The taxes would offset money lost
when NAFTA wipes out most tariffs
and other trade barriers that could
lose the U.S. government about $400
million ayear over the next five years.
"We will have to work through the
whole issue of how we deal with the
act that if we pass NAFTA we have
"toreduce tariffs," Clinton told agroup
of undecided House members.
"That'sa$2.5billiontaxonAmeri-
can consumers ... that we will reduce.
Under our budget laws, that has to be
replaced in some way," he said.

THE PATHS OF LIFE

U.S. Senate rejects effort to
limit Clinton's role in Haiti

N Republican measure
fails, 65-33
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Senate rejected a Republican effort
last night to give Congress a greater
say in President Clinton's ability to
use combat troops in conflicts such as
Somalia, Haiti and Bosnia.
By a vote of 65-33, the Senate
turned aside a measure that would
have prohibited spending defense
dollars on any United Nations opera-
tion in which U.S. soldiers were un-
der the operational command of a
foreign officer.
Minutes later, it adopted, 96-2, a
non-binding resolution calling for
U.S. troops to be placed under the
operational control of qualified com-

manders.
The so-called sense of the Senate
amendment also urged the president
to consult with Congress before plac-
ing combat forces under foreign com-
mand and asked for areport within48
hours of the decision.
Sponsoring this measure were
Sens. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) and John
Warner (R-Va.). Sens. Malcolm Wal-
lop (R-Wyo.) and Charles Grassley
(R-Iowa) were the only opponents.
Congressional dissatisfaction with
the administration's foreign
policymaking has fueled Senate ef-
forts to curb the president's power,
and for the second straight week the
White House had to fend off congres-
sional limits.
"I think the administration has

been given a warning light," Nunn
said of the debate and subsequent
votes.
Sen. Don Nickles (R-Okla.) spon-
sor of the losing measure, said the
Nunn-Warner amendment to the fis-
cal 1994 defense spending bill was
"good cover" for his colleagues.
Two more battles loomed over
amendments by Senate Minority
Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) on prior
congressional authorization for the
use of the military in Haiti and Bosnia.
This was the second time in a
week that the White House found
itself fending off a single senator's
effort to restrict presidential author-
ity.
Last week, itwas Sen. Robert Byrd
(D-W. Va.) and Somalia.
