Campbell said "The ef gets boost in Senate By JOHN KING Aasocigfd Pr— i WASHINGTON The Senate on Thursday endorsed a Democratic child-care package providing low-income parents with subsidies and tax credits The endorsement followed the defeat of a White House-backed alternative based almost entirely on tax relief The Democratic leadership’s victory in the showdown left its multi-billion-dollar plan as the centerpiece ' of the Senate’s child-care legislation Under an agreement between the parties the debate continued Thursday on a number of proposed amendments with Republicans seeking to tack parts of their defeated tax-credit plan onto the Democratic measure A final vote was expected today before the Senate breaks for a two-week recess Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell said he would delay the recess if action on child care dragged past today House action on child care at the committee level is scheduled to begin next week - In addition to a $175 billion subsidy authorization the Democrats’ plan creates a new tax credit of up to $500 to help low-income parents buy health insurance for their children It also would make refundable in advance the existing dependent care tax credit a step designed to provide cash to low-income parents who otherwise cannot take advantage of the credit because their incomes are so low they do not owe taxes Combined those Lawmakers hope to douse flag burning By LEE BANDY and WILL MOREDOCK Suit WfHfl Calling the UJS Supreme Court decision a "disgrace to all of us who dearly love America and our symbol of freedom" Republican Sen Strom Thurmond and Democratic Rep Butler Derrick said Thursday they’ll introduce a constitutional amendment making it illegal to burn the American flag That was a wish come true to the South Carolina Legislature which quickly churned out a resolution calling for such an amendment shortly before state lawmakers went home for the year The resolution sponsored by Rep Larry Martin D-Pickens criticized the high court’s 5-4 decision Wednesday that flag burning is protected under the Constitution's guarantee of Linda Stellar Tha Slate fort has been destroyed by the efforts of two or three individuals leading the fight from Charleston “If it sits out there as an eyesore for five years and rots as it's in bankruptcy then that's fine They can look at il” Campbell and other supporters of W 3 Sea Point 8-A credits cost the government about $3 billion a year The defeated GOP plan also allowed poor families to get the dependent care credit up front Its other major element was an expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit to allow low-income parents to receive a credit of $500 for one child under the age of 5 and $750 for two or more eligible children Among the amendments Republicans were pressing before a final vote was one to substitute their EITC expansion for the health-insurance credit in the Democratic plan Senate Democrats predicted their plan would serve as the framework for the measure that ultimately clears Congress Republicans did not disagree but said likely differences with the House would lead to a conference committee and allow the Bush administration to seek a compromise The White House on Wednesday raised the prospect that President Bush would veto the Democratic bill saying that the president’s senior advisers would recommend a veto if the legislation reached the White House in its present form Bush spokesman Marlin Fitzwater however said later in the day that the administration hoped to a compromise In trying to kill the Democrats’ bill Republicans argued it would create new government bureaucracies and limit parental choice because the legislation recommends that states adopt minimum standards for child care free speech “Five to four” said Rep Dave Waldrop D-New berry “I think the five ought to be out O-U-T out" Martin called the decision a “very sad chapter in United States history” and said flag burning is an “act of violence” against patriots The General Assembly was part of a national wave of protest against the decision The US Senate voted 97-3 to a resolution expressing “profound disappointment” with the ruling and President Bush in a speech in New York said he understood the legal basis for the decision and promised to “see that the law of the land is fully supported” But Bush added: “I have to give you my personal emotional response: flag burning is wrong dead wrong The flag of the United States is very W See Flag B-A Airlines heighten inspections By DOUGLAS JEHL Log Awgtf Tun— WASHINGTON Secretary of Transportation Samuel K Skinner still seeking to bolster aviation security in the aftermath of the Pan Am 103 bombing ordered UJS air carriers Thursday to intensify their efforts to screen radios tape players and computers carried ' aboard planes in Europe and the Middle East But Skinner rejected a plan that could have banned such electronic devices from passenger compartments altogether saying such a move would have unnecessarily inconvenienced millions of business and pleasure travelers In deciding not to penalize such passengers Skinner warned that overreaction to the threat of terrorism would “only further the terrorists’ objective of disrupting the world's air transportation system" The new regulation issued nearly See Airline B-A
