The House continued consideration of H.R. 5269, to control crime, but came to no resolution. The House agreed to the Gekas, McCollum, Moorhead, Unsoeld, Hyde, and Frank amendments to H.R. 5269, and rejected two amendments offered by Hughes. The Gekas and McCollum amendments allow capital punishment for additional offenses, the McCollum amendment deals with drug offenses. The Moorhead amendment was a technical amendment related to forfeited assets. The Unsoeld amendment modifies provisions preventing semi-automatic weapons parts to be imported. The Hyde amendment eliminated language reforming the habeas corpus provisions. The Frank amendment requires a market study of certain products before the Federal Prison Industries can produce a new product. The Hughes amendments would have made the death penalty easier to impose and allowed less time for death row prisoners to file habeas corpus. The House adopted H.Res. 488, the rule to consider H.Con.Res. 310 and adopted the conference report for fiscal 1991 budget appropriations. close
