Soldier vote amendment

Washington (UP) –
The Senate-approved amendments to the Soldier Voting Act, which would relax censorship restrictions on reading material for the Armed Forces, were passed by unanimous consent by the House today and sent to the White House.

House members approved the measures without comment, after Rep. Eugene Worley (D-TX) introduced the legislation which yesterday gained Senate approval.

“This is merely a qualifying amendment,” Mr. Worley explained.
