WASHINGTON The Senate
headed toward passage Tuesday of
a package of miscellaneous tax
provisions after soundly rejecting an
effort to liberalize a tax benefit
targeted on low-income working
families with children.
The bill would clear up errors and
ambiguities in the 1986 tax overhaul,
relieve farms and some other busi
nesses from paying the federal tax on
diesel used for off-road purposes,
extend severd expiring provisions
and raise taxes by S2.7 billion over
three years to pay for the benefits.

reactors, on Tuesday announced that
the introduction of new safety proce

Savannah River Plant, which produ

Energy Undersecretary Joseph
Salgado also gave assurances that

Included in the legislation is a "bill

require the IRS to inform taxpayers
fully of their rights and triple to 30

Standing in the way of a final vote
was a stack of amendments to delete
some provisions from the bill written
by the Senate Finance Committee or
to add new ones to it.
Senate passage would send the bill
to the House, which has passed a
