House GOP heads off plan to end weapons programs
Friday - 5/18/2012, 9:09am EDT
Defense News reported Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) offered an amendment to cancel one version of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Conyers said ending the F-35-B would save $50 billion over the life of the program.
Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) moved to cancel the V-22 Osprey used by the Marine Corps. He called it pork with wings.
Both amendments failed on voice votes. Also rejected was an amendment by Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) to kill plans for a new long-range bomber.
