The Senate began consideration of S. 1241, to control crime and reduce violent crime. The Mitchell (D-ME) amendment 365, to strike provisions that ban the use of the death penalty if statistical evidence demonstrates that it is used in a racially discriminatory manner, was adopted. The Thurmond (R-SC) amendment 367, in the nature of a substitute, was rejected. The Mitchell (D-ME) amendment 366, to strike provisions that ban the use of the death penalty if racial discrimination is proven, was withdrawn. A unanimous-consent time-agreement was reached providing for the consideration of a proposed Thurmond (R-SC) amendment to limit the application of the exclusionary rule, with a vote to occur on the amendment. The Senate received nominations to the positions of Director of the United States Information Agency and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. close
