Community Opinion Campaign finance backers vow bitter fight WASHINGTON day after a fiery blow-up in the'House, supporters of legislation to reduce the role of money in politics vowed to resurrect their bill with or without the help of the Republican leadership- ''We're trying to let things cool off a lit- tle said Sen. John McCain, K-Ariz., adding he hoped Speaker Dennis Hastert would agree to reschedule the-measure quickly "If not we have to explore all options." McCain and other supporters of the bill said those options included an infrequent- ly used, parliamentary procedure to force legislation onto the floor, a tactic that requires the signatures of 218 House members on a petition and can take weeks to complete. Hastert, R-HL, in a brief telephone interview, said, "Right now, if s not on our schedule and we'll have to step back and take a look at it." As for the bill's sponsors trying to force the legislation to the floor, he said, "Obviously, an option that's open to them." House Democratic Leader Dick Gephardt met with Reps. Christopher Shays R-Conn., and Martin Meehan, D- Mass., as aides researched the require- ments for preparing the petition. Rep. Jim Turner said he discussed the possibility of forwarding a petition with McCain. "We both concurred we should first call on speaker Hastert to set the bill on the calendar for a fair the Texas who participated in a similar effort in 1998 that prompted then- Speaker Newt Gingrich to schedule the issue for a vote. Shays said that if the campaign finance bill remains he will release GOP papers exposing details of the amount of money committee chairmen and subcom- mittee chairman are asked to raise, and from whom. Tou will have copies of those papers, because if the public doesn't care, the pub- lic doesn't know" he told reporters in a news conference in ids ofSce. The bill was from the House floor on Wednesday after lawmakers, on a vote of 228-203, rejected GOP ground rules for debate that the measure's sup- porters had attacked as unfair. Hastert and other Republicans defended them, and pointed out that Democrats, along with 19 rebel GOP lawmakers, derailed debate on the measure. The legislation would implement the most sweeping "overhaul of campaign finance laws since the Watergate reforms of a more than a quarter-century ago. The centerpiece of the bill is a near-total ban on soft money, the unlimited contributions that unions, corporations and individuals .make to political parties. The two parties raised roughly million in such funds in the last' campaign cycle, and spent much of it on television commercials that are often stop just shy Jbf (See-FINANCE, Page 2) Septuplets born In critical condition; but beautiful, according to doctors WASHINGTON "ica's second surviving set of sep- tuplets five boys and two girls were in critical condition Fri- day at a Washington hospital, where doctors described them as tiny but perfectly formed and "beautiful."

(AP) A compromise in the state budget to fund the Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling means fewer radio and billboard advertise- ments will be done "to publicize how gamblers can get help, an administrator says. A'joint conference committee of the Legislature's leaders has approved for the coun- cil for the next two years as part of the next state budget. The full Legislature and the governor still must approve the plan. The" state Senate had autho- rized for the program the same amount as during the last two years but the state Assembly approved a bud- get with no money for the coun- cil. The conference committee is working out differences between the two chambers on hundreds: of budget items. The council has received state money since 1998. "We're happy to still be in the budget. But we're disappointed that the funding had to be cut. The money was put to use well in our public awareness said Rose Gruber, the gambling council's executive director. The council: is headquartered in Green Bay, home to; one of the largest casinos in Wisconsin. -It operates a 24-hour toll free-tele- phone hot Ime for people seeking help gambling problems, providing referrals tp treatment providersi and; to Gamblers Anonymous and GamAnon meet- ings. The number of calls to the hot line has risen from in 1996 to last year, Gruber said.
