After amending the bill Saturday to eliminate the one-point penalty assessed against a violator's driving the House tentatively approved the measure. The Senate version of the which already has passed that does not in- clude the point penalty. Before approving the the House beat back five other amend- ments that would have weakened the bill. One would have required only persons under 18 years old to wear seat belts. Another would have ex- empted rural mail carriers. There was no clear-cut test to indicate whether the bill will have the 71 votes needed for passage on the final roll call.
