House OKs $1.7 trillion budget plan
WASHINGTON - The House last night approved a $1.7 trillion Republican
budget proposal that would provide huge future tax cuts, increase spending for
defense and education and devote a majority of projected budget surpluses to bol-
stering Social Security.
The budget passed 221 to 208 largely along party lines, while the Senate worked
into the night, on track to pass a similar plan before Congress leaves for a two-week
recess. House and Senate Republicans hope to iron out differences when the
return in April, something they were unable to do last year when the two chambers
split over tax and spending cuts.
In practical terms, the GOP budget approved yesterday is largely a political doc-
ument that represents a first salvo in the year long debate between Congress and
the administration over the shape of spending and tax policy.
The GOP budget is premised on a new era of rising surpluses that could total
$2.6 trillion about the coming decade. The sharp differences between Republicans
and Democrats' about whether to return some of the surplus to taxpayers or spend
it on government programs will likely form the contours of the political debate
through next year's election. While both'parties broadly agree on setting aside the
vast majority of the surplus to fund baby boomer retirements in the next centurjN
Republicans want to devote the remainder to to tax cuts.

Fire kills 4 in
Mont Blanc tunnel
CHAMONIX, France -
Firefighters struggled yesterday to put
out a fire that killed four people inside
the Mont Blanc tunnel connecting
France and Italy.
Italian firefighters managed to extin-
guish flames in eight trucks on their
side of the seven-mile tunnel. The
French, hindered by toxic fumes and
smoke, were still trying to reach the
fire from their side, police said.
The Belgian truck that was the
source of the fire was still burning yes-

tunnel would remain closed for several

vice president a day earlier.
As troops patrolled streets to maji-

The Senate gave the president's legal
team 48 hours to prepare his defense
