Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

THE SENATE

The death of Senator Quentin N. Burdick (D-N.D.) could mean a significant shift of power to the Northeast on the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. Although new Chairman Daniel P. Moynihan (D-N.Y.) has been de facto head of the panel during Burdick's illness, only now will he get full power, including the right to hire his own staff. Meanwhile, North Dakotans face a bothersome voting schedule: They'll vote on Nov. 3 to pick a successor to retiring Democratic Senator Kent Conrad and then, not later than Dec. 8, will fill the two years left in Burdick's term.Edited by Stephen H.
