The measure was offered in response to a Veterans Administration study that found considerably higher rates of cancer among Marines who served in Vietnam than those who did not.

The Vietnam Veterans of America and five members of Congress filed suit Friday to prevent the Reagan Administration from closing eight outreach centers for Vietnam War veterans. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, charges that the Veterans Administration's plan to close eight centers and move their operations to regular VA hospitals violates the intent of Congress. The VA already has closed an outreach center in Wilmington, Del., and plans closings in Rochester, N.Y.; Fayetteville, N.C.
