House Votes Limit on Desegreqafiofi Busing WASHINGTON (AP) The house make a limited, last-resort rem- edy, to overcome school segre- gation. By a 293-117 vote it approved an amendment to a school biU that would restrict busing to neighborhood schools -and re- quire other' remedies to be tried before any busing can be or- dered.'- Culver Against Iowa's Democratic represent- atives John Culver, Neal Smith and Edward Mezvmsky Voted against the amendment along with Republican Wiley Mayhe. Iowa Republican Repre- sentatives H; R. Gross and Wit liam'Scherle voted for it. j Similar.legislation was passed by the house in 1972, but failed to get through the senate; Sen- ate action will also be necessary to put the new amendment into effect. The amendment was offered by Representative Marvil L. Esch (R-Mich.) and cosponsored by most Michigan representa- tives. A busing plan involving Detroit and its suburbs is now before the supreme court. The amendment lists seven methods of dealing with segre- gation that must be tried before any busing can be ordered. The alternatives include assignment to neighborhood schools, volun- tary transfers, construction of closing of schools and revising attendance zones. Not Beyond Only after all these have failed can busing be ordered, and then busing cannot go beyond the school closest or next closest to the pupil's home, according to the bill. Esch said the main purpose of (he amendment is to make clear that congress is opposed to bus- ing across school district lines, a major issue in the Detroit bus- ing controversy. Opponents of the amendment said it is probably unconstitu- tional and would be no more ef- fective than several previous anti-busing measures adoptee by congress, .which have been ignored by the courts. Before adopting the Esch amendment, .the'hOuse defeated by voice vote a compromise proposal that would have set up a 10-year program to help bring school districts, into compliance rath dese'gregaiion plans. It also would have made busing a last- resort remedy, bub would not have restricted its use if the courts found it necessary.
