.Welfare
reforms
begin to
*take shape
WASHINGTON (AP)---Reform-
ing welfare is now such apopularidea
that Republicans are racing to beat
President Clinton to the punch while
moderate Democrats press the White
House to overhaul the system in time
for their 1994 campaigns.
House Republicans just finished
their version of welfare reform legis-
latlon and plan to introduce the 154-
page bill Wednesday. It would end
welfare to most non-citizens, require
mothers who apply for assistance to
identify their child's father, and limit
lifetime benefits to two years.
Centrist Democrats, meanwhile,
have sent notice to a White House that
needs their votes that they intend to
help the president keep his campaign
*promises to impose time limits and
work requirements.
"We want him to know that he
does not have to back down and settle
for window dressing around the edges
and leave the dry rot to continue to
weaken the entire structure," said Rep.
Nathan Deal (D-Ga.).
Moderate Democrats say the ad-
ministration is under pressure from
liberals and the welfare bureaucracy
that runs welfare programs from
Washington to the counties and cities
to back away from sweeping change.
"What you have is activist groups
... who don't find fault with the exist-
ing system," said Rep. Eric Fingerhut
(D-Ohio) who once managed a job
placement and training program for
welfare recipients in Cleveland.
"They're an important and respected
*onstituency in the Democratic Party
and have great ability to influence the
debate."

Hopes for peace surround Jordan's
first multiparty election in 37,years

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -Candi-
dates made last-minute appeals Sat-
urday for votes in Jordan's first
multiparty elections since 1956, in
which proponents of peace with Is-
rael are expected to retain a majority
in parliament.
Today's elections come after Is-
raeli officials confirmed over the
weekend that Jordan and Israel are
close to reaching a peace agreement.
King Hussein has not yet made any
public comment.
While Muslim fundamentalists are
expected to win the single largest
bloc in the 80-seat lower house of
parliament, conservative and tribal
members who support Hussein'spro-
peace policy are expected to keep a
majority of seats.
The bicameral legislature must
ratify any peace agreement, although
Hussein retains ultimate authority
with the power to dissolve parliament

and rule by decree. The 40-seat upper
house is appointed by Hussein and
normally backs him.
Jordan and Israel signed an agenda
for peace talks on Sept.14, aday after
Israel and the Palestine Liberation
Organization reached a peace accord
that provides for Palestinian self-rule
in the occupied territories.
But while peace has played a role
in campaigns, Jordanians appearmore
concerned with poverty and unem-
ployment. The country is straining
under a $6.5 billion foreign debt and
$4 billion in losses stemming from
1990-91 Gulf crisis, when trade with
Iraq, Jordan's biggest trading partner,
was blocked.
For the most part the campaign
ended peacefully. Police briefly de-
tained a Muslim fundamentalist can-
didate after he and supporters roughed
up two members of a moderate Is-
lamic party, the state-run Petra news

agency said.
Candidates-held rallies, passed out
fliers and pounded the pavement to
win support in this nation of 3.9 mil-
lion people.
The fundamentalist Muslim Broth-
erhood and leftist groups oppose the
U.S.-backed peace process. The
Brotherhood advocates Israel's de-
struction while the leftists say the
process has failed to provide for a
Palestinian state.
Both groups appear to have failed
to turn their opposition into an elec-
tion winner, even though half the
population is of Palestinian descent.
Analysts said the lineup in the parlia-
ment was unlikely to change much.
The Brotherhood had 22 seats in
the outgoing parliament. It was a thorn
in the side of the government, but the
chamber largely backed Hussein. The
left is split among communists,
Baathists and pan-Arab nationalists.
