House panel backs a plan for extra Salvadorean aid

The House Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously approved a compromise plan for extra military aid for El Salvador. The compromise would allow the aid on the condition the Salvadorean government begins unconditional talks with opposing forces within 90 days after enactment of the bill. The House committee vote followed a unanimous vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday on another compromise plan that also would give President Reagan part of the extra aid money he seeks for El Salvador. The House action applies only to 1984 aid, and the amount was set at $ 50 million, while the Senate panel voted to give $76.3 million.
