Congress gave final approval Friday to a bill authorizing $42.6 billion in U.S. and allied payments toward the cost of the Persian Gulf War, including a $655-million package of benefits for Desert Storm troops and veterans. Before departing on a two-week Easter recess, lawmakers also passed a related $4.8-billion "dire emergency" money bill that contains $650 million for Israel and $200 million for Turkey to defray war-related costs. Both measures were sent to President Bush for his signature.

U.S. weapons sales to the Third World more than doubled last year, making America the world's top arms supplier, an annual congressional report has found. The growth in U.S. arms sales--to $18.5 billion in 1990 from nearly $8 billion in 1989--is attributed to the Iraqi threat in the Persian Gulf and to shrinking Pentagon budgets. These smaller budgets are forcing defense contractors to sell abroad or go under, said the report by the Congressional Research Service.
