SENATE The Senate on Thursday sank the balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution, defeating it on a 64-35 roll call that is certain to be cited often by the amendment's Republican champions as the November election draws near. Majority Leader Bob Dole had no expectation of winning the two-thirds majority required. "We will have the vote. We will lose. But we'll make a statement that's the important thing," said Dole, the presumptive GOP presidential candidate. With Claiborne Pell, D-R.l., absent for the vote, Dole needed 66 votes to win. Voting to amend the Constitution to require a balanced-budget: Rick Santorum; R-Pa.; Arlen Specter, R-Pa.; Michael DeWine, R-Ohio. Voting against: John Glenn, D-Ohio; Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.; John Rockefeller, D-W.Va. - In another defeat for Dole, Democrats on Tuesday blocked consideration of a bill mandating the deployment of a national missile-defense system by 2003. The near party-line vote of 53-46 was seven short of the 60 votes needed to break a Senate filibuster. Democrats opposed the bill because they said it would abrogate the 1 972 Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty and could undermine Russian ratification of the START II treaty. Both treaties require the dismantling of nuclear warheads. Republicans argued that Congress must sustain its fundamental constitutional responsibility to defend America and that if the ABM treaty cannot be amended, then the U.S. should withdraw from it. Voting to end debate: DeWine, Santorum, Specter. Voting against: Glenn, Byrd, Rockefeller. HOUSE Following a bitterly partisan debate, the House on Thursday passed, 289-136, legislation that would make it easier for Wisconsin to implement its state-passed plan to overhaul its welfare system. The bill would bypass the usual 30-day review period and instead "deem granted" the more than 80 exemptions from federal mandates which Wisconsin has requested. Freshman Republican Mark W. Neumann of Wisconsin said his state shouldn't be "bogged down in a bureaucratic process that does not work." Democrats maintained that Republicans had hastily arranged a vote to force the president to sign off on the Wisconsin plan without a thorough review. Voting to approve Wisconsin's welfare plan: James Traficant, D-Ohio; Bob Ney, R-Ohio; Mike Doyle, D-Pa.; Frank Mascara, D-Pa.; Bill Clinger, R-Pa.; Phil English, R-Pa.; Bud Shuster, R-Pa. Voting against: Bill Coyne, D-Pa.; Ron Klink, D Pa.; John Murtha, D-Pa.; Robert Wise, D-W.Va. Not voting: Alan Mollohan, D-W.Va. McDade named at-large GOP delegate By Anick Jesdanun ' The Associated Press HERSHEY, Pa. Rep. Joseph McDade was unanimously selected yesterday as an at-large delegate to the Republican National Convention in San Diego even though his trial on bribery and racketeering charges is not likely to finish by then. McDade, a 17-term Scranton Republican, was picked because of his status as the most senior Republican in the congressional delegation. His trial in Philadelphia starts tomorrow and is expected to last three or four months. The convention begins Aug. 12. In the event McDade cannot attend, one of the alternate delegates will take his place. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., said he didn't think the pending charges should effect McDade's ability to be a delegate. "He's the dean of the congressional delegation. He has the right to it, in my opinion," Santorum said. Six other at-large delegates were select- "He's the dean of the congressional delegation. He has the right to it, in my opinion." Sen. Rick Santorum ed unanimously during the Republican State Committee meeting to round out the 73-member delegation. Gov. Ridge was chosen the delegation's chairman, and Anne Anstine, the party's outgoing state chairwoman, was picked to serve as the delegation's vice chairwoman. Alan Novak was chosen the state's chairman but will be an alternate delegate at the convention. In addition to McDade, Ridge and Anstine, other at-large delegates will be Republican National Committeewoman Elsie Hillman, Republican National Committeeman Herb Barness and Sens. Arlen Specter and Santorum. Other Pennsylvania delegates will be U.S. Reps. Bud Shuster, Bob Walker and William Clinger. Hillman and Walker were named to the platform committee, which will have considerable say over whether the Republican Party keeps its anti-abortion plank. Ridge said Lt. Gov. Mark Schweiker stepped aside as delegate to make room for McDade. "Mark had wanted to go, but he understood the congressional delegation historically has sent an at-large delegate," Ridge said. Schweiker will go as an alternate instead. Sixty-six delegates, selected by congressional districts, were chosen by voters during the April 23 primary. Congressman receives big bucks for legal defense By Anick Jesdanun The Associated Press WASHINGTON Rep. Joseph McDade, who goes on trial tomorrow after four years of fighting bribery and racketeering charges, has raised at least $950,000 to pay his defense attorneys. The largest amount in a single year came in 1995, when McDade, R-Pa., raised $250,000 for a legal defense fund, according to records provided Thursday to The Associated Press. Reports filed in February show he used another $100,000 last year from a separate campaign fund to pay legal bills. McDade's legal bills have continued to grow as he took the case through two rounds of appeals before jury selection even begins. Supporters helping to foot the bill last year include former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci, the National Football League, organized labor and defense contractors. The indictment already has cost McDade chairmanship of the House Appropriations Committee. If convicted, the 17- term lawmaker would face a maximum fine of $1.25 million, up to 34 years in prison, and expulsion from the House. Prosecutors accuse McDade of accepting about $100,000 in campaign contributions and gifts in exchange for helping defense contractors win more than $50 million worth of contracts. His May 1992 indictment said McDade, then the ranking Republican on the Appropriations defense subcommittee, arranged for college scholarships for his son, received free airplane rides and vacations, and accepted a jacket commemorating the Masters golf tournament. McDade, 64, has challenged the indictment for four years on grounds the charges violate constitutional separation of powers. After the Supreme Court refused to consider his appeal in March 1995, he launched another round using a different clause in the Constitution. McDade's chief defense attorney, Sal Cognetti, refused comment on the size of McDade's legal bill, other than to say more than half of the fees have been billed by other attorneys who worked on the case before the indictment was issued. Formed in 1992, the congressman's legal defense fund raised $220,000 in each of the first two years. Contributions fell in 1994 to $70,000. Before last year, McDade also used $100,000 in campaign contributions to his re-election committee. Contributions last year ranged from $5 to $5,0.00 and came from 17 states and the District of Columbia. Those giving the high amount include Pocal Industries Inc. and Gentex Corp., defense contractors in McDade's district, and Philip Morris Co. Inc., the cigarette maker. - Jack Valenti, the president of the Motion Picture Association of America, gave McDade $500, the AFL-ClO gave $1,000, and Rep. Barbara Vucanovich, R-Nev., contributed $200. McDade also received $500 from the National Football League's political action committee and $300 from Carlucci and his wife, Marcia. McDade received another $24,570 in legal and other services, including the costs of a fund-raiser for the defense fund. His trial in Philadelphia is expected to last three or four months.
