working Close to passage Tax goal is March 1 WASHINGTON AP The SllSbillion tax bill has taken a giant stride toward enactment but whether it can become law by March 1 the administration goal is uncertain The Senate Finance Commit tee voted 125 approval of the measure Thursday after 20 days of executive sessions and well over 100 separate votes But the floor debate cannot begin until congressional staff experts finish drafting all of the new language written into the 310page bill by the committee They indicated Friday this might well take all of next week In that case the debate probably would not start before Feb 3 This would leave only seven or eight days for floor ac tion before the passage deadline of Feb 11 set by Democratic leaders They must meet that deadline if the final enactment goal of March 1 is to be achieved If the Senate does not pass the bill until after the Feb 1117 Lincoln Day recess there would be little chance to have the conference with the House
