COELHO'S DAIRY INVESTMENT DRAWS ATTENTION

Rep. Tony Coelho (D) of California had an interest in a dairy management company at the same time that he was pushing legislation to help maintain the profitability of some dairy farms, a review of records shows. Mr. Coelho, the House majority whip, invested between $5,000 and $15,000 in Dairy Management Associates in December 1983, while he was a member of the House livestock, dairy, and poultry subcommittee.

Unlike executive branch employees, members of Congress are not barred from holding assets that might conflict with their official duties. They are free to craft and vote on bills that could affect their financial interests, but must disclose the holdings.
