Today, the Senate takes up a temporary measure to KEEP the government running until Congress and the President can AGREE on a budget.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Capitol Hill/Yesterday;


The House approved the bill yesterday.
The Clinton administration says a VETO is LIKELY because the bill reduces spending levels TOO far.
And a controversial Senate bill BANNING a rare, late-term abortion procedure has been put ON HOLD, pending hearings.
Abortion rights advocates regard the vote as a temporary victory. It stalls an effort to ban "partial-birth" abortions. That's when a doctor partially removes a fetus in order to complete the abortion.

This is the much touted debut of model Cindy Crawford.

Ms. Crawford plays not a model, not a workout vixen, but an attorney under attack by some very nasty KGB agents with lots of technology and some very big guns.
And although Crawford looks good, love scenes such as they are, are flat and look like they were added as an afterthought to show off bits and pieces of Cindy.
