The World : S. Africa Sanctions Voted

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee overwhelmingly endorsed anti-apartheid legislation that would ban loans to the South African government, limit computer sales and bar the export of U.S. nuclear technology or products. The bill is not as tough as one expected to be passed by the Democratic-controlled House. The 16-1 vote by the Republican-controlled committee indicates growing impatience within President Reagan’s party with South Africa and Reagan’s low-key program of “constructive engagement.”
