The Senate passed S. 100, to set forth United States policy toward Central America and to assist in its economic recovery and development.

The Senate ratified several treaties concerning seafaring operations and forced labor. A unanimous-consent time agreement was reached concerning S.Res. 117, providing agriculture export guarantees to the Soviet Union. The injunction of secrecy was removed from an amendment to an environmental treaty doctrine. close
