with and investment in the 48 countries of sub-Saharan Africa. It
removes quotas on textile and
apparel imports from Kenya and
Mauritius, broadens a president's
authority to waive import duties,
urges the establishment of countryby-country free-trade agreements,
rod earmarks $660 million for
developing commercial infrastructure. Howmuch a country is helped
would depend on factors such as its
respect for human rights, commitment to free-market economic
reforms, recognition of intellectual
property rights, and curbs on government corruption.
The bill reduces U.S. tariff
receipts by an estimated $231 million over six yean. Sponsors said
the loss would be offset by tax code
changes that tighten IRS treatment
of deferred severance pay.

Property rights
The House passed, 230 for and 180
against, a bill (HR 802) to help those
who file lawsuits claiming government has wrongfully taken their
property. These "takings" suits
sometimes allege, for example, that
environmental regulations have
diminished Fifth Amendment property rights guarantees. The bill
gives the U.S. Court of Claims equal
standing with federal district courts
to provide full relief in takings suits.
It streamlines the present split system by which requests for injunetive relief are heard in district court
and claims for damages are heard
by the Court of Claims.

Senate
By a vote of 96 for and four
against, the Senate passed a bill (S
1173) that authorizes about $214 billion in transportation grants to the
states over the next six years, about
40 percent over current levels.
Highway construction gets $173 billion and mass transit $41.3 billion.
The bill funds specialty areas such
as repairing the nation's 526 covered bridges and upgrading "trade
corridor" highways to Mexico. It
allocates the fUll 183 cents-per-gajlon U.S. gasoline tax to transportation spending, and-guarantees that
states will get back at least 91 cents
for every gas tax dollar they send to
Washington. Twenty "donor" states
will get less than one dollar back.
To avoid funding cuts, states will
have to outlaw drinking in moving
vehicles and adopt a blood alcohol
level of 0.08 percent for defining
drunk driving. Ten percent of funding is set aside for contracts to

about $10 billion in tax credits and
loan guarantees since 1960, accordIng to floor debate. The subsidies
