The GOP leaders limited debate on the four GOP bills to 40 minutes apiece, waived advance notice of the language in the bills, forbade amendments, required a two-thirds vote for passage and banned consideration of any Democratic or bipartisan bills.

DISCOUNTS Jy Andrew Mollison 'aim Heach Post Washington Bureau WASHINGTON House Republican leaders Monday night won their battle to kill the last, lingering chances for major campaign finance reform for this year's elections. A comprehensive Republican bill loaded with controversial :lauses was rejected, 337-74, with najorities from both parties vot-ng against it. The House then considered iree Republican measures with t much narrower scope. It defeated one that restricted union spending, and approved two others, one that tightened disclosure rules and one that banned contributions by foreign residents of the United States. 'These bills, do they solve every problem? No," said Rep. Tillie Fowler, R-Fla.

But the same part of federal Tlie Associated Press WASHINGTON The American Cancer Society, best known for raising millions of dollars to Gght the disease, steered $30,000 of this year's proceeds to the Democratic and Republican parties. The contributions represent a tiny fraction of the society's $378 million annual budget. But they trouble tax experts just the same because charities may not make political donations. Cancer Society officials contend the contributions to the Democratic and Republican governors' associations are acceptable because they went to non-political accounts held by the organizations. These accounts finance the groups' annual conferences and dinners, not their political activities.
