The House debated the Bill tuesday night and then on wednesday voted 402-18 to agree to minor changes made by the Senate and Send it to Bush for his signature. The administration has supported the Bill which would require the Justice department to keep data on crimes related to race religion sexual orientation or ethnic groups. It is supported by a variety of civil rights ethnic and police groups. The House had already approved the Bill and this time consented to the changes made when the Senate passed the measure on feb. 8. Under the measure the government would count the crimes of murder non negligent manslaughter forcible rape aggravated assault simple assault intimidation arson and destruction damage or vandalism of property a number of supporters said such a count is needed because of a rising tide of a hate crimes on the part of Neo nazi a a skinheads and other such groups although there is no certainty that such offences Are increasing. The Justice department reported in May 1988 that an accurate count is not available. But it said a these types of offences Are far More serious than comparable crimes that do not involve prejudice because they Are intended to intimidate an entire estimates of the Cost of gathering the information have varied but the Justice department said it would have no trouble making hate crimes part of the of big a annually published uniform crime reports. The Only House member to Rise in opposition to the Bill was rep. William Dannemeyer r-calif., who portrayed it As a Concession to the Gay Community. A believe me whether we like to accept it or not there Are persons outside this chamber who Are crowing namely in the homosexual Community a he told the House.

After he is sworn in probably on monday Ryan will be responsible for administering toughened financial standards enacted last August As part of president Bush a savings and loan bailout. He will decide which institutions stay in business and which Are seized by the government. Democrats opposed to his nomination said the 44-year-old attorney who has specialized in pension and employee Benefit Law is ill prepared for the task because he lacks banking experience. Ryan was chief attorney for the labor department Early in the Reagan administration and worked in the presidential campaigns of Bush and Gerald r. Ford. A a he san outstanding lawyer As far As i know and an outstanding person a said sen. Kent Conrad . A a that a not the question. Titis Man has no experience in the financial services Industry and this Job is the biggest financial services Job in the Ryan a admission that he tried marijuana and cocaine 17 years ago As a Law student figured Little in the debate.

Who got us where we Are today drowning in a cesspool of unbridled greed and fiscal irresponsibility the Victory margin was wider than both democrats and republicans predicted. A the White House has an awful lot of clout and they certainly used it a said sen. Howard m. Metzenbaum a Ohio who opposed Ryan.
