Washington Digest By STEVE TETREAULT. Donray Washington Bureau Campaign finance bill stalemated WASHINGTON — Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif., voted last week to break a months-long deadlock on a campaign finance reform bill. Sen. Pete Wilson, R-Calif., voted to continue the delay. The Senate effort to end the stalemate failed. For the sixth time, Democrat sponsors could not muster the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster mounted by Republican opponents intent on killing the legislation. The Senate voted 53-42 to end the four-month old filibuster, falling sevenvotes short. The bill would set state-by-state voluntary spending ceilings for Senate candidates, place limits on contributions by political action committees, or PACs, and provide federal financing for candidates whose opponents refuse to comply with the spending limits. Sponsors say the bill is needed to end what they describe as obscene levels of spending on political campaigns, particularly by special interest PACs. Most Republican senators, how- ever, have criticized the spending limits and the idea of taxpayer financing of Senate elections. Ambassador confirmed The Senate had more success breaking a long delay in confirming a new ambassador to Mozambique. Senators voted 64-24 to confirm Melissa Wells, a career diplomat most recently serving in the State Department, to represent the United States before the African nation. The vote broke a standoff between the Reagan administration and Sea Jesse Helms, D-N.C. Helms had held up the nomination, demanding the administration abandon its support of Mozambique'^ Marxist government and instead recognize an anticommunist, South Africa- supported rebel group. The administration refused, saying it believed it could wean Mozambique from its identification with the Soviet Union. The deadlock was broken when Republican leader Robert Dole of Kansas withdrew his support of Helms.Helms also was bun by reports of a rebel-engineered massacre in a Mozambican village in July. Cranston voted to confirm Wells. Wilson voted against confirmation. Health bill approved The House voted 387-9 to extend a federal scholarship and grant program aimed at improving health care in neglected areas. The bill extends for three years the National Health Service Corps. The program gives loans and scholarships to medical, dental and nursing students. Upon graduation, students can "repay" their loans by spending two years practicing in underserved communities. The bill was opposed by the Reagan administration, which has said the program has been so successful helping underserved communities that it now can be phased out. Rep. Doug Bosco, D-Calif., voted for the health bill. The votes were the first taken by lawmakers as they returned from a four-week summer recess. Hayden sponsorship plagues tax checkoff bill SACRAMENTO (AP) — A nasty exchange over Assemblyman Tom Hayden's backing of a bill to raise money for a California memorial for Vietnam War veterans nearly scuttled (he measure. A retired Marine castigated former anti-war activist Hayden and was in turn told to drown himself. But the author removed the names of Hayden and 38 other legislative coauthors and the bill was sent to the governor by a 69-5 vote early Saturday. The debate was over AB992 by Assemblyman Tom Hannigan, D-Fairfield, himself a former Marine who served in Vietnam. The bill would allow income taxpayers to contribute towards the planned memorial in Capitol Park on their tax returns. That is similar to current tax checkoffs for programs such as abused children and endangered wildlife. Assemblyman Gil Ferguson, R-Newport Beach, the retired Marine, complained about Hayden being principal coauthor of the bill. The bill also has 38 other coauthors, of both parties. Ferguson said Hayden shouldn't be on the bill because of his anti-war activism. Hayden, husband of actor-activist Jane Fonda, was a student leader in the 1960s and early 1970s and opposed U.S. military and foreign policies in Southeast Asia. Assemblyman Dick Floyd, D-Hawihorne, loudly called Ferguson "sick, sick, sick." "We don't need superpatriots coming up here and telling us to clean up our house," Floyd said. "Mr. Ferguson should clean up by drowning himself in Newport Harbor." Hayden rose and spoke softly. "I opposed that war out of honest rage... My opposition to the war was not an opposition to the men who served. We discovered we were manipulated and lied to by our government." He said he had offered to remove himself as principal coauthor and become one of the plain coauthors, but Ferguson rejected that. An obviously angry Hannigan said it was the first lime he had ever seen a debate over who was the coauthor of a bill. There was "nothing sinister" about Hayden's coauthorship, said Hannigan; he routinely sent a memo to all lawmakers asking who wanted to be a coauthor. "This is an important bill to the construction of this project and it would be a shame if it failed to get 54 votes because of this," Hannigan said. The bill fell 11 votes short of the two-thirds majority, so Hannigan returned the bill to the Senate and stripped it of its coauthors. The bill was approved the second time in the Assembly shortly after midnight.
