Hohmann TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON -- The 93rd Congress, just over u a month old, is already staggering under tons of paperwork. By mid-February, the 535 elected representatives' of the cople had managed to in reduce nearly 6,000 pieces ot egislation. The proposals now awaiting c o n g r e s s i o n a l action -- or naction-- run the gamut from :he serious to the inane. There are many serious bills. Rural congressmen, for instance, introduced legislation tc force the President to spend m o n e y on agriculture programs. The bill raises a fundamental question: who controls the Federal purse strings? There are others, like Florida Democrat Don Fuqua's bill to provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President. Several bills woulc permit prayer in schools; others want to halt the bussing o c h i l d r e n f o r desegregation purposes. Congressmen introduce bills to change the world, corrcc social injustices, alter Federa programs that affect our lives.
