They said the package would save a record $1.4 trillion over the next seven years, using $350 billion to cut taxes on families, businesses and investors and the rest to erase red ink. v. Both parties knew their fight over the deficit pjbobably will dominate next year's elections. Balancing the budget and reducing taxes would fulfill the central campaign promises the GOP made last fall and, Republicans said, spell a brighter economic future for America. "This is about the children," said House Bud- get Committee Chairman John Kasich, R-Ohio, chief architect of the package that was certain to pass today. But using words like "horrible," "irresponsible" and "extreme," Democrats attacked Republicans not for what they would do but how they would do it. They said,seniors, students, poor families and other vulnerable people would shoulder the brunt of the plan's pain while well- off Americans and huge corporations would reap some benefits in the form of tax breaks. "If Republican were serious, they wouldn't have a budget-busting $350 billion tax giveaway paid for by our grandmothers," said Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio. In a precursor of today's final passage, lawmakers approved the rules for debating the measure by a mostly party-line 255-168 vote. In the end, up to 10 Democrats and fewer Republicans seem likely to defect from their parties' positions. "We didn't get here overnight, and we're not going to get out of it overnight, and we all have to accept some responsibility for that," said conservative Rep. Mike Parker, D-Miss., who supports the GOP plan. On the other side of the Capitol, Senate Republicans planned to begin a weeklong floor debate today on their budget-balancing plan. That measure, crafted mainly by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Pete Domenici, R-N.M., lacks a tax cut. However, GOP senators spent much of Wednesday privately trying to decide whether to add them during floor debate. In an attempt to embarrass President Clinton, Senate Republicans were prepared to put the White House's budget up for a vote if no Democrat stepped forward to do so. It envisions annual deficits of roughly $200 billion indefinitely. The proposed budgets would bind Congress to reduce the deficit by specified amounts, but the programs they target are recommendations only. Lawmakers will make those final decisions in future bills that may provoke veto fights with Clinton. 'Formula' pricing may hurt ranchers and consumers By MICHAEL BATES The Associated Press WICHITA — Kansas Farm Bureau officials concerned that meatpacker pricing practices are hurting the cattle market have asked for a federal investigation. "We need a federal investigation by the appropriate entities, followed by action to ensure a fair and open market system," Gary Hall, bureau president said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. The Kansas Farm Bureau, the state's largest farm organization with more than 40,000 families as members, has written letters to Attorney General Janet Reno, Agriculture Secretary Dan Clickman and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. It wants fact finding on the effect of meat- packer pricing practices, including formula pricing, forward contracting and direct packer-ownership of cattle. The bureau's concern is not just an agricultural producer issue, said Hall, a Chapman-area farmer. "Cattle prices have fallen more than 20 percent in the last two years. Consumer prices have not dropped proportionately. If there is a relationship to formula pricing, we all need to know," he said. A Glickman spokesman said the agriculture secretary, who is from Kansas, had not had an opportunity to study the letter and respond. "But when he had a series of rural forums in April, that was one of the issues he did hear quite a bit about," spokesman Jim Petterson said. "The department is looking at it and is concerned about it." The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Packers and Stockyards Administration has a study under way looking at pricing issues, including the effect of a small number of large packers dominating the market, Petterson said. That report is due in December. The antitrust implications of pricing policies will have to be investigated by the Justice Department or the Federal Trade Commission, he said. A Justice Department spokeswoman assigned to handle antitrust issue media inquiries did not .immediately respond to requests for comment. The American Meat Institute, a packing industry trade group in Arlington, Va., also did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Formula pricing is when feedlots and purchasers agree to a formula for slaughter-ready cattle prices. It usually is based in part on current cash prices. But there is not any negotiation. Both the feedlot and packer agree in advance the cattle will be sold to that buyer without competitive bidding. Forward contracts lock in a purchase price well in advance of the date the cattle are ready for delivery. Some packers purchase cattle and place them in feedlots rather than buying cattle from feedlots. The Kansas Farm Bureau approached then-Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy last year about cattle pricing. "We were not satisfied with the response to our concerns last year," Hall said. "The KFB Board of Directors believes formula pricing is not in the best interest of cattle producers." Solid information on pricing policies is difficult to gather, Hall said. "We do believe, though, the anomalies we have seen in the cash price market have provided enough substance that investigation is warranted," he said. "Hopefully, through the investigation, we can come to some more definitive conclusions, such as what the exact price distortions have been." Until an investigation is complete, it would be premature to suggest regulations or other possible solutions, Hall said. Twin daughters don't have the same father By The Associated Pr«s* DENVER — A medical anomaly — 8-month-old fraternal twins with different fathers — is the backdrop for a custody battle involving the girls' mother, boyfriend and estranged husband. DNA tests show the husband fathered one girl and the boyfriend fathered the other, said lawyer John Ciccolella, who represents the husband. The tests say neither man could have sired the other girl. The identities of the adults and the twins were withheld by the lawyers. El Paso County District Judge John Hall is deciding who should get custody. He's expected to issue a temporary order next week. The mother, who has moved out of state with her boyfriend, wants to keep full custody of the children, Ciccolella said, while the husband wants them to return to Colorado Springs so he can have contact with the child. Cases in which twins have separate fathers are rare, said Dr. Bradley Hurst, an assistant professor of endocrinology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. "It is something that under any circumstances would be very rare and I can't imagine there can be more than five or 10 cases reported in the medical literature over the last 100 years," he said. "Before the days of DNA testing, the ability to prove different fathers was kind of hard to do." For it to occur, the mother would have to ovulate twice in one cycle and have intercourse with both men around the time she ovulated, he said. DNA tests were ordered to settle the paternity issue as part of divorce proceedings, Ciccolella said. "The mere fact that the children are of separate fathers makes no difference as far as a custody determination," he said. FOR YOUR INFORMATION Hospital admissions ASBURY — Stacy L Adkins, Hope J.
