The House filed a report to amend title 18, to require a waiting period before the purchase of a handgun. The House passed H.R. 1988, to authorize appropriations to NASA for research and operational purposes. The House agreed to the Torricelli amendment that deletes language in the bill that policies restricting U.S. foreign launch capabilities should apply only when adequate launch capabilities exist. The Zimmer amendment that instructs the National Academy of Sciences to report to Congress on whether space station research goals could be met through use of other existing or proposed space vehicles and platforms, was agreed upon, as were the Solomon amendments, requiring drug testing of random officers and employees of NASA. The House passed H.J. Res. 109, designating the week beginning May 12 as “Emergency Medical Services Week.” Other commemorative periods approved by the House included Physical Fitness and Sports Month, Infant Mortality and Awareness Day, and Senior Nutrition Week. close
