Congress voted Thursday to order a local referendum on whether to establish the death penalty in the District of Columbia, a city scorched by an epidemic of drugs and crime. The House voted 264 to 129 to add the provision to a $630-million appropriations bill. The House, and the Senate hours later, passed the overall measure by voice vote and sent it to the White House. The money is intended to reimburse the district for lost tax revenues and for city services provided to the federal government.
