SUPREME COURT DECISION THAT STUNNED CONGRESS

This article reviews the effects of the Supreme Court's decision of June 23, 1983, striking down the so-called legislative veto as unconstitutional. The article includes comment by various officials, Capitol Hill's reaction--mostly negative--an insert of some laws which had legislative-veto provisions, and a second insert touching other rulings by the Justices on auto safety (airbags and automatic seat belts in new cars), pregnancy benefits, and reapportionment cases.
