Attorney General Janet Reno is readying court actions to force a handful of states to comply with a federal law easing voter registration, administration officials said Sunday.

Lawsuits could be filed as early as Monday against up to five states - Illinois, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania and South Carolina - although the officials said some of those states could avoid the suits as a result of last-minute discussions with state officials or evaluations of state efforts to comply.

The law, passed with strong Democratic support over considerable Republican opposition, requires all states to provide voter registration through the driver licensing process, through the mail and at state social service offices. AP MICHIGAN Deal Ends Strike: GM To Hire More Workers

GM said it expected to resume parts production during the night and reopen the idled assembly plants today.

The 6,800 members of UAW Local 651 went on strike Wednesday at the AC Delco Flint East complex, two factories that make a variety of parts used in many GM cars and trucks. AP
