The House defeated an attempt Wednesday to override President Bush's veto of the Democratic tax-cut bill, providing another setback for the Democratic leadership, which had promoted the legislation as a potential election-year issue. Democratic leaders not only failed to muster the two-thirds majority needed for a veto override, lawmakers defeated the proposal, 215 to 211. Some 52 Democrats joined 163 Republicans in opposing the override.

During stormy confirmation hearings on his nomination to become CIA director two years ago, Robert M. Gates pledged to end decades of secrecy by making public how much money the United States spends each year on intelligence. Doing this, Gates said, would be a "symbolic step that the (CIA) could take . . . that would suggest that the mentality of the Cold War has changed (and) that would suggest to the American people that there is a greater sense of openness."
