In a Bill that has a surprising amount of support from both sides of the House, federal funding for abortions is set to he ceased under plans that will outrage many citizens. There is an exception however in that an abortion is allowed to proceed if the mother's life is in danger. However this has been criticized by women's rights groups for effectively giving the State power over a women's body.

    New Bill to Ban Discrimination in the Judiciary and Legislative branches. Representative Douglas Seymour (D-) has today introduced a Bill to make illegal the act of employment discrimination. The Bill will amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to require that decisions affecting applicants or employees of the Judiciary and legislative branch are not determined by color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap, or age. Interestingly Members of Congress can take into account a person's domicile or political affiliation. There will also be an Employment Review Board set up in the Judiciary branch to review employment decisions. Members of the board will be drawn from retired Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges. The board will be required to submit written reports to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics. Furthermore if a violation is found to have occurred the Employment Review Board can compel the defendant to do one of the following; 1. Employ or reinstate such individual on such terms and conditions as may be appropriate, except that the Board may not compel any committee or Member of Congress to employ or reinstate, or modify the terms and conditions of employment of, any individual; 2. Pay compensatory damages; and 3. Pay fees and allowances of witnesses and reasonable attorneys' fees. We await any developments.

    Overdue Veterans Department & Illegal Soviet Imports - Some of the plans included on House Docket. --- The House of Representatives' docket has opened with a Bill to establish a Department for Veteran Affairs. This comes as welcome news to many Americans as for many years some have felt that ex-servicemen have been forgotten and abandoned and not treated with the respect they deserve. The new department will be responsible for delivering and coordinating health services for veterans, legal affairs for veterans as well as funeral arrangements to ensure they and their families are treated with dignity Another piece of legislation which is on the docket is the "Protecting American Textile Manufacturing Act" which will ban textile imports from the Soviet Union. Representative Douglas Seymour has introduced this bill with a number of co-sponsors. The main talking point is the banning of importing textiles and textile products from the USSR and that individuals or firms who import them directly or indirectly will be liable to prosecution.
