Ann Arbor, Michigan-Tuesday, May 13, 1980
WASHINGTON (AP)-The Senate
approved a $613.1 billion balanced 1981
budget last night, but last-minute spen-
ding hikes raised new doubts about
whether Congress will actually
eliminate the federal deficit for the first
time in 12 years.
The vote on final passage was 68-28,
with 49 Democrats and 19 Republicans
voting for the budget while six
Democrats joined with 22 Republicans
in opposing it. The budget for fiscal
1981, which starts Oct. 1, now goes to a
House-Senate conference committee.
BEFORE APPROVING the defense-
oriented budget package, the Senate
voted to restore money for Saturday
mail delivery, boost veterans spending,
keep federal law assistance grants

By a voice vote, the Senate agreed to
restore $300 million for Saturday mail
deliveries, paying for that increase by
cutting federal administrative costs an
additional 1 per cent across-the-board,
except for defense.
The 1 per cent cut is on top of a 5 per
cent reduction in t~ bureaucracy
already approved by the Budget Com-
mittee and some observers believe the
new cut is unrealistic.
THE SATURDAY mal amendment
by Sens. John Glenn (D-Ohio) and
David Pryor (D-Ark.) puts the Senate
in disagreement with the House, which
favors elimination of Saturday mail.
Earlier, on a 87-6 vote, the Senate
raised spending on veterans affairs by
.$300 million to $21.3 billion and agreed
to pay for the hike by reducing a
promised tax cut that was to be paid for
by the $10 billion oil import fee.
Ironically, the decision to use the im-
oart fee money followed a 75-19 Senate
