US Senate hearing on Air Force tankers set for Jan. 27
The Senate Armed Services Committee will convene a hearing Jan. 27 to examine the inadvertent release of data from the bids of Boeing Co. and European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co. on the U.S. Air Force's new aerial tanker. Senator Carl Levin, D-Mich., the committee chairman, promised the hearing based on concerns from Senator Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., that the release may have tainted the competition.
