Economist Now.spjpi'rs, Wi-dm-sday, March £1, I!I77 Suction II How your congressmen voted HOUSE WASHINGTON - Here's how area members of Congress were recorded on major roll call votes MarclflO- 16. VIETNAM PARDON .Adopted, 220 for and 187 against, an amendment to prohibit spending certain Justice Department and Immigration and Naturalization Service appropriations to implement President Carter's pardon of Vietnam era draft evaders. It was attached to a fiscal 1977 appropriations bill (HR 4877), later passed and sent to the Senate. The vote might not thwart the pardon, since funds could be obtained from other appropriations bills and the Senate might reject the prohibition. At a minimum, it was a symbolic rejection of Carter's pardon. Rep. John Myers (R- Ind.), the sponsor, called the vote ""possibly the only opportunity you will have to express your views on...the pardon. If the Members feel the pardon was wrong, .the · vote is yes to restrict and limit the funds. If the Members feel otherwise ..they can vote against my amendment." Rep. John Slack (D-W. Va.), an opponent of the amendment, said "it appears to be an attempt to nullify the pardons granted by'President Carter. (It) would make it impossible to administer the program and would create a chaotic situation." Reps. Martin Rosso (D- 3), Edward Derwinski (R- 4), Henry Hyde (R-6), Philip Crane (R-12), Robert McClory (R-13), John Erlen born (R-14), Tom Corcoran (R-15), George O'Bnen (R- 1 17), Robert Michel (R-18) ' and Edward Madigan (R- 21) voted "yea." Reps. Ralph Metcalfe (D- 1), Morgan Murphy (D-2), John Fary (D-5), Dan Ros- tenkowski (D-8), Sidney Yates (D-9), Abner Mikva (D-10), Frank Annunzio (D- Gym show .

Cardiss Collins (D-7) did not vote. RHODESIAN ORE -Passed 250 for and 146 against, a bill (HR 1746) /living President Carter authority to stop imports of chrome from Rhodesia. In effect, the bill repeals the so-called Byrd Amendment which permitted chrome imports from Rhodesia in defiance of United Nations' sanctions against trade with the white-minority government of that African nation. The bill later was passed by the Senate and signed into law by Carter. Rep. John Brademas (D* Ind.), a supporter, said: "At stake .is the integrity of our commitment to human rights and majority rule. At stake is the integrity of our international legal obligations. At stake, in part, is the prospect for peaceful settlement of the issues afflicting southern Africa." Rep Dan Daniel (D-W. Va.), an opponent, said: "The excuse in the Congress for this action was human rights. Now we find our purchase of chrome ore and ferrochrome must be made from such countries as the Soviet Union, Albania and India, none of which has shown any concern for human rights. How hypocritical can we be?" Metcalfe, Murphy, Rosso, Fary, Rostenkowski, Yates, Mikva, Annunzio, McClory, Erlenborn, Anderson, Railsback and Price voted "yea." Derwinski, Hyde, Crane, Corcoran, O'Brien, 'Michel, Madigan and Shipley voted "nay." Collins, Findley and Simon did not vote. WOMEN -- Adopted, 249 for and 157 against, an amendment requiring an equal number of men and women to sit on the proposed 20-member National Commission on Neighborhoods, a panel that would advise the Department of/ Housing and Urban Development on remedying urban decay. The amendment was attached to HR 3843, a-HUD funding bill. Despite this vote, the proposed clbimis- sion later was stricken from the bill. Rep. Mary Rose Dakar (D-Ohio), sponsor of the amendment, said that women are under-represented throughout the government, and that "Members who believe that women have as much talent, perspective and intelligence as men will support this amendment." Rep. Edward Koch (D- N.Y.), an opponent, said "it would be easier to vote for it rather than to have to ex- plain my vote." However, he added, "What is required is that all people -- men and women -- without regard to race, religion or national origin be considered on the basis of their individual merit. Affirmative action programs I will support -- quotas never." Metcalfe, Murphy, Collins, McClory, Corcoran, Anderson, O'Brien, Railsback, Madigan, Shipley, Price and Simon voted "yea." Derwinski, Fary, Hyde, R o s t e n k o w s k i , Yates, Mikva, Annunzio, Crane, Erlenborn, Michel and Findley voted "nay." Russo did not vote. SENATE PUBLIC WORKS Adopted, 65 for and 24 against, an amendment to defeat President Carter's plan to stop construction of 19 massive water development projects, most of them located in the West Carter earlier stated his intention to shut off these public works projects beginning in the fiscal 1978 budget. Although this amendment applied to fiscal 1977 expenditures, it demonstrated the resolve of the Congress to fight Carter on the issue. The amendment was attached to HR 11, later passed and sent to conference with the House. Sen. Bennett Johnston (D- La.), the sponsor, summarized the resentment of SUPPER CLUB in the CONDESA DEL MAR pnsentt 2-for-1 DINNERS AND SHOW ANY TIME 5 P.M. TO 2 A.M. SUN., TUES., WED,, THURS.

"Apparently some in the executive do not understand what the law is and we are reminding them what the law is," he said. ben. Gaylord Nelson (D- Wis.), an opponent of the amendment, said: "I respect and support the instinct of the President to finally say, 'For heavens sake, let us not dam every river, every stream, and every watershed in this country just as part of some project that is desired by some groups or Members of Congress.'" Sens. Charles Percy (R) and Adlai Stevenson (D) voted "yea." RHODESIAN ORE -Passed, 66 for and 26 against, a bill (HR 1746) which in effect puts the U S. in compliance with the United Nations sanction against importing Rhodesian chrome The House earlier passed the bill (see above vote) and this vote sent the measure to President Carter, who signed it and ordered a halt to such imports. Sen Dick Clark (D-Ia.), a supporter, said enactment of the bill "will implement the announced policy of President Carter and that of three previous Presidents -- Democrat 'recognize Republican and alike," and will political and economic realities to which the United States must now, after years of debate, meaningfully respond." Sen. Strom Thurmond (R- S.C.) said that if chrome imports from Rhodesia are stopped "then we will be without approximately one- fifth of our supply of ferro- chrome. The impact of that on our economy, in terms of jobs in the industry and the price of stainless steel, would be rapid and drastic." Percy and Stevenson voted "yea " A B S E N T E E I S M -Moved, 71 for and two against, to instruct the Sergeant at Arms "to request the attendance of absent senators." There was no debate on the motion by Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.). The motion came during consideration of legislation to cut off U.S. imports of Rhodesian chrome (see above vote). After a quorum call showed only eight senators on the floor, Helms made the motion in hopes of achieving a quorum so that legislative business could proceed Percy and Stevenson voted "yea."
