Panel restores $112 million to Army budget
from Government Executive
The House Armed Services Committee agreed to restore $111.6 million to the Army's budget for several technologies the service is salvaging from the canceled Future Combat Systems program. The amendment to the fiscal 2011 defense authorization bill, offered by Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, and agreed to by voice vote during the early hours of what will be a marathon markup, reduces to $779.4 million the overall cut to Army modernization efforts that the panel's Air and Land Forces Subcommittee made last week.
