WASHINGTON (UPI) Spurred on by a warning that "pusillanimous action" would bring down the entire world economic system, the Senate agreed Friday to put up $1.9 billion to help developing nations cope with soaring oil prices. The voice vote in favor of the funding was part of a frustrating, amendment by amendment fight on the floor of the Senate over the $9.2 billion foreign aid appropriations bill. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R- Utah, forced the Senate Thursday into voting on more than 50 foreign aid amendments individually rather than as a block, slowing down action on the appropriations bill. Hatch said he wanted to strip the bill, which in- cludes nearly $1.7 billion in aid to Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria, of "those foreign expenditures which are not in the best interest of the United States." The $1.9 billion U.S. contribution would go to a $10.5 billion fund created by the International Monetary Fund to help developing nations solve balance of payments problems resulting from oil prices hikes. The Senate approved the amendment after rejecting by a 47-18 vote a motion by Sen. Dennis DeConcini, D- Ariz, to reduce the amount to $500 million. Sen. Jacob Javits, R- N.Y., had warned that failure of the Senate to approve the entire amount "may very well signal the first step in the breakdown of the entire international monetary system." "If we wreck this one by pusillanimous action, by cutting it to $500 million, we'll get what sve deeply deserve," Javits said. The U.S. contribution — a loan to be repaid in 12 years with interest — was part of an international effort that included members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Members of the oil carte) responsible for the widespread petroleum price rises since 1973 were putting up nearly half of the special fund, with Saudi Arabia contributing S2.5 billion by itself. The Senate bill will eventually have to be reconciled in a conference committee with a $7.2 billion House version that does not include money for the IMF fund.
