— NPR's Brian Naylor reports that the compromise tax and spending bills, designed to bring the federal budget into balance by the year 2002, appear to be headed for easy passage in both houses of Congress, despite grumbling from a small minority of members. Those who plan to vote against the measures include opponents of the higher cigarette and airline ticket taxes.
