Economist Newspapers. Wednesday, March 16,1977 |[ How your congressmen voted Tax session Saturday Cere's how area members ofjCpngress were recorded on major roll call votes March 3-9. $5* REBATE- Rejected, 194 for and 219 against, a Republican-sponsored move to substitute a'permanent income tax cut for the one- shot $fO rebate advocated by President Carter. The attempt/came in the form of a motion ,to .send the overall bill back,to committee. Its defeat left Carter's rebate proposal intact. ·, This vote occurred during' debate on the major tax-cut bill originated by the administration and generally favored by the Democractie majority in Congress. The bill (HR 3477), later passed and sent to the Senate, provides in part for a rebate of $30 for each standard deduction claimed'on 1976 tax returns; similar payments to the very poor and other non-tax-paying persons; an additional tax cut in the form of a raised standard deduction to take effect with pay checks issued May 1, 1977, and a business tax credit to encourage employers to step up hiring. Supporters of the 'permanent tax cut argued it would best generate the disposable income the lagging economy needs. Rep. Barber Conable (R-N.Y.) called it a "much sounder economic strategy than the ($50 rebate) which offers neither a sharp stimulative impact nor a permanent reduction upon which consumers can base long-term spending plans." Rep. Al Ullman (D-Ore.) defended the one-shot rebate stimulus.

"It will go into effect immediately. It will have an early impact." Reps. Edward Derwiiski (R-4), Henry Hyde (R-6), Philip Crane (R-12), Robert McClory (R-13), John Erlenborn (R-14), Tom Corcoran (R-15), John Anderson (R-16, George O'Brien (R- 17), Robert Michel (R-18), Thomas Railsback (R-19), Paul Findley (R-20) and Edward Madigan (R-21) voted "yea." Reps. Ralph Metcalfe (D- 1), Morgai Murphy (D-2), Martin Rosso (D-3), John Fary (D-5), Corliss Collins (D-6), Dan Rpstenkowski (D-8), Sidney Yates (D-9), Abner Mikva (D-10), Frank Annunzio (D-ll), George Shipley (D-22), Melvin Price (D-23) and Paul Simon (D-24) voted "nay." AIRCRAFT CARRIERS --Rejected, 161-for and 252 against, an amendment to spend $81.6 million this fiscal year for development of another nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the Navy's fifth. It was proposed to HR 3839, a fiscal 1977 budget' bin later passed and sent to the Senate. If it stands, this vote will signal a major shift in U.S. naval tactics, away from the existing conventionally- fueled carriers. The latter are less vulnerable to enemy missiles, but require as- yet-unperfected vertical takeoff and landing (V- STOL) jet aircraft. Rep. Robert Sikes (D- Fla.), a supporter of the amendment, said: "We should have both the Nimitz carriers and the small .carriers. We cannot have both now but we can have the Nimitz carrier. A vote (against the $81.6 million expenditure) simply means a backward step." Rep. Joseph Addabbo (D- N.Y.), an opponent, said that the present secretary of defense and his predecessor both oppose building another Nimitz carrier. "They feel we need two small aircraft carriers that can be easily dispersed, rather than one* large sitting duck," he said. "This is what we're debating." Derwinsld, Hyde, Annunzio, McClory, Michel, Shipley and Price voted "yea." Metcalfe, Murphy, Rosso, Fary, Collins, Rostenkow- Sunda Buy one, get one free NOW ALL WE GOTTA DO IS FIND SOMPEODT WHDUOtfT WANT THEIR FREE OHE good o ff ScrumpdUlyishus 99 offer Tkurs.-Fri. 9 Mar. 17th 18th Sundaes are always "scnimpdillyishus" at DAIRY QUEEN*.

Dairy Queen i on An no c o ski, Yates, Mikva, Erlenborn, Corcoran, -Airiierson, O'Brien, Findley, Madigan and Simon voted "nay." Crane and Railsback did not vote. SPORTS PANEL--Rejected, 75 for and 271 against, a resolution to continue the Select Committee on Professional Sports. Those voting "nay" opposed the committee, which was created in the last Congress to study anti-trust questions, the hazards of artificial turf and other matters relating to pro sports. Rep. Frank Horton, (R- N.Y.), a committee member and supporter of the resolution, said "we are talking about a very small budget...a frugal operation, to look at a very important area of our economy and our society--the sports field." Rep. Charles Wiggins (R- Calif.), an opponent, said: "I frankly would be embarrassed if I were to vote for it. I suggest it might be a matter of some embarrassment to the Members voting for it. It just might tell the constituents...much more than they would want to tell the constituents about our own sense of priorities around here." Metcalfe, Rosso, Derwinski, Fary, Hyde and Rosten- kowski voted "yea." Collins, Yates, Mikva, Annunzio, Crane, McClory, Erlenborn, Corcoran, Anderson, O'Brien, Findley,-'. Madigan, Shipley and Simon voted "nay." Murphy, Michel and Railsback did not vote. SENATE WARNKE--Confirmed, 58 for and 40 against, the nomination of Paul C. Warnke as chief U.S. negotiator in strategic arms limitation (SALT) conferences with the Soviet Union. Later, by a much wider margin, the Senate confirmed Warnke to serve also as director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament agency. Warnke's nomination as SALT negotiator was bitterly contested out-of fear he might give too much Soviets. Although failing to block his appointment, his detractors succeeded in denying him a two-thirds majority--a symbolic victory because any new SALT treaty will need a two- thirds vote to be confirmed by the Senate. One supporter, Sen. Edward Brooke (R-Mass.), said: "Ultimately, the responsibility for any SALT n agreements will rest with the President and the Congress. I am confident that Mr. Warnke can and will provide both branches of government with the information and advice necessary for wise decisions" Sen. Howard Baker (R- Tenn.), an opponent, said that "two or 20 or 40 votes against the Warnke nomination is significant in the further efforts of mankind to save itself from extinction." Sens. Charles Percy (R) and Adlai Stevenson (D) voted "yea." (By Roll CaD) U.S. Rep.
