The House continued consideration of H.R. 4300, the Family Unity and Employment Opportunity Immigration Act. After rejecting the Lewis and Bryant amendments, the House passed H.R. 4300. The Lewis amendment sought to provide reimbursement to states and localities for cash, educational and medical assistance to aliens. The Bryant amendment sought to delete all provisions except those relating to family unity. Finally, the language of H.R. 4300 was substituted for S. 358 and was passed in lieu. The House suspended the rules and passed S. 1511 to clarify the protections given to older individuals in regard to benefit plans. The House continued debate on H.R. 5269, the Crime Control bill. During debate, the House agreed to the Bustamante and Martin amendments and rejected the Staggers amendment. The Bustamante amendment made it impossible for local governments to get federal anti-drug enforcement block grants directly. The Martin amendment reduced the anti-drug and law enforcement block grants to states without statutes requiring convicted rapists to be tested for AIDS at the victims request. The Staggers amendment sought to change the sentence for certain crimes from the death penalty to mandatory life imprisonment without parole plus restitution. close
