(Studio) Social security increases, anti-crime laws, and tax reform most significant.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(DC) Overall increase of 7%. Tax likely to rise from 4.8% to 5.2% to pay for it. Won't be passed for quite a while.
REPORTER: Louis Rukeyser

(DC) Tax reform package probably won't be passed until next year Senator Edward Kennedy and others warn they want to see some reform before passing 10% surtax extension. Nixon could upstage critics if reform pushed through.

(DC) Nixon to ask for $1 billion to fight crime. Funds used for more FBI, narcotic agents, prosecutors, clerical help, prison reform, and more money for police. Tough law proposals to be sent to Congress soon.
