House Session - October 11, 1990

The House agreed to recommit the conference report on S. 2104, amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to the committee of conferees to include language that makes it clear that businessmen and women would not have to adopt artificial quotas. The House agreed to H. Res. 477, the rule waiving all points of order against the conference report. The House passed H.R. 4825, to amend the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of 1965 after agreeing to the Williams amendment and rejecting the Crane en bloc and Rohrabacher en bloc amendments. The Williams amendment prohibits NEA funding of obscene works, creates greater accountability to the NEA and gives states a larger share of NEA funds. The Crane en bloc amendment sought to abolish the NEA and the Rohrabacher en bloc amendment sought to prohibit the NEA from funding defined obscene works. The House rejected the Synar motion to instruct conferees to S. 2830, Food and Agricultural Resources bill, to expand the scope of the bill. The House agreed to the Durbin motion to instruct House conferees at the same conference committee to insist on a section relating to public education and the dangers of tobacco use. The House passed H.R. 5794 by a voice vote, to amend the Age Discrimination Claims Assistance Act of 1988.
