In most of the recent sess-cns, only a handful of all-out lobby battles developed during the year Medicare, right-to-work repeal and rent supplements in 1965, minimum wage extension, unemployment compensation and civil rights in 1966, and import quotas and consumer bills in 1967. But in 1968, powerful lobby groups grappled with each other on a host of major issues. The biggest lobby battles of the session were over the tax surcharge bill, open housing, the antiballistic missile (ABM), system, gun control, truth-in-lending, occupational safety, airport development, water pollution control, and a renewal of the Import quota issue. In view of the tough infighting, few of the groups Involved could point to anything approaching a perfect record. In the traditional tlon between business and labor, business came out slight--ly better. An almost united front of business interests pushed successfully for the tax bill, together with a $6-billlon cut in government spending. Labor preferred tax reform to the tax increase and adamantly opposed the $6-billion reduction in spending. On another major labor-business issue, the Chamber of Commerce of the United States and other business groups overpowered the AFL-CIO's effort to win enactment of new federal on-the-job safety standards. But on measures of more general interest, strong labor support helped beat back business pressures. This was the case on open housing, truth-in-lending and several other, less important, Issues. Both business and labor took a significant defeat when an array of import quota bills they supported went nowhere In the 1968 session. Free trade groups and segments of agriculture and industry worked hard against the quotas, but the threat of a Presidential veto apparently tipped the balance. Closest to a clear-cut winner in 1968 was defense industry, which gained a solid Congressional mandate for its long-sought antiballistic missile system. Few lobby groups other than traditional peace organizations opposed the costly system, and after one early-session scare in the Senate, it emerged from Congress with votes to spare. '.; Although Congress cut other areas of the defense budget by more than $5 billion, key Congressional leaders Indicated that the funds would be made up when the Government resolved Its current fiscal crisis. In other action, consumer groups won major victories with the enactment of truth-in-lendlng and poultry inspection bills but had to settle for heavily amended versions of gas pipeline and radiation safety measures. Conservation on groups fared well, with Congress completing acttion on a number of major proposals they had long sought: a Redwood National Park in California, a national system of wild and scenic rivers, a national system of trails, and other measures. Their success was tempered somewhat, however, by Congressional approval of what they considered a "shotgun" approach to highway development and failure to approve a water pollution bill. The outcome of gun-control bills was more or less a standoff between the opposing factions. While the two gun-control measures passed during the session, were by far the toughest on record, they omitted the heart of the proposals sought by proponents federal registration and licensing of firearms. The National Rifle Association's effort to kill or dilute, the bills was sought to be one of the most extensive pressure efforts ever to face Congress. 'It was offset only by a public furor for new gun curbs In the aftermath of the assassinations of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-N.Y.
