WASHINGTON - The House on Friday approved the second in a series of bills to limit the president's authority to regulate business, which Republicans said was necessary for job creation and which Democrats called a political power grab. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R., Ohio), who said the package was a top priority, will have difficulty winning final passage of the bill, which the White House has threatened to veto. Still, Republicans said the votes would highlight the government's role in regulating business, which they have made a major campaign issue.

Are any package tours planned for the 1990 World Cup soccer championships in Italy? Is it possible to get individual game tickets? The Italian organizing committee is keeping a tight lock on promotional activities and tour packages, and the only way you are likely to obtain tickets is through one of the few officially delegated agencies, and then only as part of a package.
