Reagan and GOP leaders map legislative strategy

President Reagan called a meeting Wedenesday with GOP congressional leaders to map strategy for the final days of the 97th Congress.

There are several administration-backed bills still pending in Congress, and Mr. Reagan wants to make a last push for passage before the House and Senate adjourn in mid-October.

Other legislation of interest to the President is the anti-abortion measure and a proposed constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget.
