M aker report ready President disability bill OKd Moves to Senate WASHINGTON AP The House Wednesday by unanimous voice vote approved an amend ment to the Constitution de signed to assure continuity in the office of the presidency Swift Senate concurrence in the action is expected but it probably will take two more years before threefourths of the states complete the ratification process and amend the Consti tution for the 25th time The proposed amendment deals with a longstanding prob lem The Constitution outlines the procedure for removing a presi dent from office but there is no detail as to how the disability of a president shall be deter mined Neither is there any pro vision for filling a vacancy in the vice presidency The proposed amendment given impetus by the assassina tion of President John F Kenne dy sets down procedures by which a disabled president can be removed from office and re turned to it If he formally declared the disability himself he resumes the powers and duties of office by merely sending Congress a written declaration that he has recovered If he does not take action him self the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet or some other body Congress may designate can declare him un able to carry on and the vice president immediately takes over When the president informs Congress that no disability exists he resumes office at once unless within four days the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet declare in writing to Congress that he is still dis abled Congress must assemble with in 48 hours if it is not already in session and it has 21 days to determine the issue It would take a twothirds vote of both houses to uphold the vice presi dents challenge Failure to act within 21 days would auto matically restore the president The other aspect of the prob lem keeping the vice presi dency filled would be met by having the president nominate a vice president who would take office upon being confirmed by a majority vote of both House
