&nate foes block ban on poison chemical weapons
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Facing the prospect of
rejection of a prized arms control agreement, the
Clinton administration was forced yesterday to
accept indefinite postponement of a Senate rati-
fication vote on an ambitious global treaty to
ban poison gas weapons.
The treaty, known as the Chemical Weapons
Convention, will not resurface in the current
Congress, Republican leaders and administra-
tion officials said. Whether it can be revived
next year probably depends on the outcome of
the Nov. 5 election because Republican presi-
dential nominee Bob Dole joined the opposition
ranks at the last minute.
Dole, when he was Senate majority leader,
Chemical treaty vote may return next ye ar
had brokered an earlier agreement aimed at
facilitating ratification of the accord. But this
week he endorsed the arguments of treaty critics
that its ban on the manufacture or possession of
poison gas weapons would not be enforceable or
verifiable, and that it would subject U.S. chemi-
cal manufacturers to intrusive searches by inter-
The outcome of yesterday's maneuvering rep-
resented a defeat for the administration and a
repudiation of its Republican predecessor. The
treaty had broad bipartisan support for more
than a decade, was signed by the United States
during the Bush administration's final weeks,
and appeared headed for easy ratification until
the past few weeks, when a relentless opposition
campaign began to pick up momentum.
Administration officials said they were still
confident of ratification until late Wednesday
night, when Frank Gaffney - a former
Pentagon hard-liner who runs a one-man think
tank here called the Center for Security Policy
and who has been an indefatigable critic of the
treaty - began faxing out a letter from Dole
urging his tormer Senate colleagues to vote no.
As a result. the treaty, which has been ratified
by 63 countries, is likely to go into force without
U.S. participation. Only two more countries
among the 1 60 that have signed the treaty need
to ratify it in order for it to take effect.
If that happens without U.S. participation,
senior officials said, the United States w ould be
precluded from planning or participating in the
international inspection system, which is
designed to make sure that nobody is making or
selling prohibited chemicals. Moreover, the
treaty prov ides that. without U.S. ratification,
S chemical manu urers would be banned
fom selling in most worlid markets.
The (hemical iianu facturers Association,
representing such industry giants as E.l. duPont
tic \emours & Co.. Dow Chemical Co. and
Monsnto (o.. lobbied hard for ratification.
Tihey argued that S60 billion a year in export
sales could be jeopardized if the United States
does not participate in the ireaty. The big chem-
ical companies said they were prepared to accept
the m ndatorv challenge inspections called for
in the treaty. hut treaty opponents said the
inspections would impose an unfair and perhaps
unconstitutional burden on small manufacturers
of legitimate compounds.

Negotiators for Bob Dole and President
Clinton opened debate talks yesterday
with the Dole camp proposing four
one-on-one presidential faceoffs and
two vice presidential exchanges.
The Clinton team did not immediate-
ly respond to the Dole proposal and
negotiators broke off talks after about
two hours to await a recommendation
by the Commission on Presidential
Debates on whether Ross Perot should
be part of the debates.

Perot's national coordinator Russell
Verney was excluded from yesterday's
session, but irched into the meetinog
room uninvited. By that time. the meet-

The Dole campaign does not want
Perot to share the debate stage; the
Clinton camp does.

is a world-class debater; someone who
can charm the birds out of trees. We will

president would not want to debate Bob

Chnstian Coalition growth slows
WASHINGTON (AP) - After five
years of explosive growth, contributions
to the Christian Coalition declined last
year for the first time, tax records show.
The bad financial news comes as the
conservative religious group gathers
here for its annual meeting, a session
also dogged by a government lawsuit
and an investigation by federal prose-
The conservative religious group
reported donations of S18.7 million in
1995 - a decline of nearly 12 percent
from the previous year, when support-
ers gave $21.2 million.
Coalition spokesperson Mike
Russell said the decline meant little
because 1995 was a non-election year
that gave the group's state affiliates a
chance to concentrate on their own
local fund raising. Those dollars don't
show up on the national organization's
reports, he said.
"We're on track. for a S24 million
budget this year,' Russell said. The actu-
al figure won't be disclosed to the
Internal Revenue Service until next July.
The coalition claims some 1.7 million
members nationwide. but its primary
publication. the magazine Christian
American, was sent to 310,296 people
in September of' last year. the most
recent figures reported. That was down
from a September 1994 "paid or
requested" circulation of 353,703.
Russell said those f'igures also are
not significant, because circulation
