Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

CONGRESS

House Banking Chairman Henry B. Gonzalez seems to be losing his lonely fight to block a Justice Dept. subpoena of records of the defunct House Bank. But his effort may be rewarded next December, when the erratic Texas Democrat is expected to face a challenge to his chairmanship.

Yates (D-Ill.) sought court action quashing the subpoena on separation-of-powers grounds. District and appeals courts have rejected the suit.EDITED BY STEPHEN H. WILDSTROM
