Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) introduced legislation to block an Administration plan to sell $354 million worth of missiles to Saudi Arabia. Cranston said his resolution is sponsored “by 61 senators and supported by still others.” California Rep. Mel Levine (D-Santa Monica) introduced a similar resolution in the House. The Administration says the missiles will boost the oil kingdom’s defenses and prevent expansion of the Iran-Iraq War. The sale will go through in 30 days unless the House and Senate vote against it.
