ORDERED that the motion to hold in abeyance be denied. Appellant has not shown that Congress is currently considering pending legislation which would affect this appeal. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the motion for summary affirmance be granted substantially for the reasons stated by the district court in its Memorandum Opinion and Order, filed March 13, 1992.
