House bill to its Ju diciary Committee where a sim lar measure has been bottled up since last winter Htld in Senate The effect ofthis vote was to tiold the bill in the Senate where ibcan betakenup by a majority vote like any bill reported by a Senate committee The motion to take up the bill is not expected until shortly after the July 4 holiday Because that motion willbe subjectto filibuster it can in fact be carried only if supporters of the bill can muster the 64 votes required to shut off debate under the Senates antifilibuster rule Thursday nighls vote did not represent atrue test on the
