THE SALINA JOURNAL WASHINGTON FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1997 AS I *•' 2, FEDERAL BUDGET Lawmakers work out details of pact to balance the budget \ Congressional panels ' to vote today on the • proposal's blueprints By ALAN FRAM The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Two weeks after President Clinton and congressional leaders announced their budget-balancing pact, bargainers said Thursday that they had finally completed the deal's fine print. Congressional budget writers planned to begin rubber stamping the agreement today. "Yes, we have an agreement and we're not going to go through it again," said Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss. Lott spoke more than 10 hours after White House officials had arrived at the Capitol for another day of talks. "They've done as well as one can expect in working out details," said Rep. John Spratt of South Carolina, ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee. The House Budget Committee scheduled a meeting today to vote on an outline of the plan, which is aimed at producing the first federal surplus since 1969 and the broadest tax cut since 1981. The "They've done as well as one can expect in working out details." Trent Lott Senate majority leader Senate Budget Committee planned to do the same Monday, and congressional leaders hoped for final approval by the end of next week. Both committees had hoped to meet Thursday to approve their blueprints of the proposal, which is aimed at balancing the budget by 2002, trimming Medicare and other programs and cutting taxes for families and investors by about $135 billion over five years. But their sessions were postponed repeatedly as high-level negotiations proceeded. President Clinton and congressional leaders announced their compromise May 2. But they had quibbled ever since over details about spending, taxes and how the deal would be translated into law. All day, a White House team led by chief of staff Erskine Bowles met in the Capitol with Lott, House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R- Ga., and other congressional leaders. Their disagreements included whether Medicare recipients should be allowed to establish medical savings accounts and the precise date of entry into the United States for legal immigrants whose welfare benefits will be restored, participants said. The leaders completed a pair of letters dealing with the tax cuts the package will contain. They specify that the measure will contain $85 billion in net tax cuts through 2002. They also list items it should include — the children's tax credit sought by both parties, GOP plans to reduce the capital gains and estate taxes, and about $35 billion for Clinton's tax breaks for college students. "We stand to work with you toward these ends," said the letter, signed by Lott and Gingrich. Congress" tax-writing committees will make final decisions later about the details of the tax cuts. The leaders also produced an "addendum," providing details about spending and legislative procedures for the budget agreement. ; T ETHICS PENALTY ; Gingrich to take } smaller Dole loan » ; By The Associated Press \ WASHINGTON — House Speak- 'er Newt Gingrich made a $50,000 down payment Thursday on his $300,000 ethics penalty and promised the ethics committee he would borrow no more than half of the money from former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole. rMM^mru In winning GINGRICH ethics commit . tee approval of a repayment plan, Gingrich said he has an agreement with HarperCollins to write knother book for the publishing firm.
