Washington Outlook: CAPTIAL WRAPUP

VETS

Members of Congress are falling all over themselves to show their gratitude to Desert Storm veterans, and the result could be a major budget-buster. One proposal would increase the amount of G. I.s' pay that is not subject to income taxes. Another would exempt reservists from the 10% penalty tax on early withdrawals from individual retirement accounts. Congress might also provide new health and child care benefits to military families. A Senate Democratic task force has assembled a $750 million package of goodies. Under new budget rules, however, any new spending has to be offset by decreases in outlays for other programs. Capitol Hill Republicans, with strong backing from the Administration, are expected to fight for a smaller package.
