Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

FOREIGN AID

President Bush may have to accept some unwanted domestic spending to win House approval of aid for former Soviet republics. House Majority Whip David E. Bonior (D-Mich.) is threatening to hold up action on the Administration's assistance package unless Bush signs off on a plan to pump $10 billion into a jobs-producing public-works program and a measure to provide a long-term extension of unemployment benefits. The White House wants the foreign assistance package passed before Russian President Boris Yeltsin visits Washington on June 16-17.EDITED BY STEPHEN H. WILDSTROM
