Budge Mabry, director of the UT system's Medical

because it corresponds to the school's 6-percent decrease

Clinton still pushing trade legislation
WASHINGTON - Unable to bend Congress on trade, President Clinton
has limited maneuvering room as he prepares for a meeting with some of
America's most important trading partners just two weeks from now.
The president is depicting his withdrawal of the fast-track trade legislation
as a temporary setback. But behind the scenes, administration officials and
free-trade supporters in Congress have begun exploring fallback positio-
for a more narrowly focused trade bill next year.
The Senate Finance Committee chair, Sen. William Roth (R-Del.), said he
would introduce a fast-track proposal focusing on specific sectors in which
America has huge competitive advantages - such as agriculture and infor-
mation technology - as an alternative to the sweeping negotiating powers
that Clinton was unable to get this week.
But some trade experts see dangers in this stripped-down approach.
"Clinton has got to keep doing what he has started doing, making it
absolutely clear that he is going to pull out all of the stops next year," said C.
Fred Bergsten, director of the Institute for International Economics in
Washington. "He has to leave no doubts about that or otherwise there could
be severe repercussions to the cause of free trade."
