Judge denies revote in Palm Beach
The Washington Post

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A handful of vot-
ers calling for a do-over of the presidential election
in Palm Beach County because they said they were
confused by the butterfly ballot won't get a second
shot at Election Day.
In a 17-page order yesterday, Palm Beach
County Circuit Court Judge Jorge Labarga said
the U.S. Constitution prohibits him from calling
a new election here, causing him to cancel a
hearing on the merits of several complaints
seeking one. He had warned voters last week: "If
I rule against you, it will probably be the most
difficult decision I have to make."
About 19,000 votes were tossed out by voting
machines, because more than one presidential candi-

date was picked. In addition, 3,500 votes were cast
for Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan, many by
voters who believed they were choosing Vice Presi-
dent Al Gore.
Henry Handler, who represents three confused
voters, said he has filed an appeal.
Most legal eyes were fixed on the capital, Talla-
hassee, yesterday and arguments before the Flori-
da Supreme Court, where lawyers for each
candidate argued over recounts and whether new
votes should be included when tallying whether
Gore or Texas Gov. George W. Bush should get
Florida's 25 electoral votes and the presidency.
But this somewhat stealth issue before Labarga
could have changed everything. Five separate lawsuits
asked him to call for an entirely new election here.
While it might seem impractical to have a new

presidential election confined to this county of I mil-
lion people, Handler said that would be the only pos-
sible way to fix-what has happened, and divine the
true intent of the county's voters. "There is very little
else that can occur," he said.
The butterfly ballot - which listed presidential
candidates on two facing pages, with an arrow
pointing to a corresponding punch hole in the cen-
ter - was both illegal and confusing, Handler
said. His clients wanted to vote for Gore, but mis-
takenly might have voted for Buchanan. Even
Buchanan admitted that he ordinarily would not
have polled so many votes in highly Democratic
Palm Beach County, with its large Jewish popula-
tion. His total there was four times higher than the
next highest county vote total he received in the

Labor issues new rules on health plan
WASHINGTON - The Clinton administration issued regulations yesterdy

The regulations, due to take effect in January 2002, are meant to signifi

Their approval by the Clinton administration came after C:engrcss gauoced
