House Session - August 2, 1990

The House agreed to H.R. 5170, Airport and Airway Improvement bill, to authorize appropriations to improve aviation safety and capacity after substituting the committee amendment and rejecting the Bosco amendment. The Bosco amendment sought to delete language that permits airpots to impose passenger user fees. The House passed H.R. 5431 to impose sanctions on Iraq. The House began consideration of H.R. 4000, after agreeing to H. Res. 449, the rule for H.R. 4000. The House agreed to the Andrews en bloc and Brooks amendments. The Andrews en bloc amendments state that an employer is not required to adopt hiring or promotion quotas and that a statistical imbalance in workforce does not establish a prima facie case of violation. The Brooks amendment placed a cap on punitive damages for employers with small workforces. The House passed by voice vote H.R. 5432 to extend the expiration of the Defense Production Act of 1950.
