House Defense Spending Bill Includes Crusader

Friday, 10 May 2002 12:00 AM

That includes millions of dollars for the Army to continue developing a weapons system that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld wants to scrap.

The House inserted nonbinding language telling the Pentagon not to kill the Crusader artillery system before doing a study on the alternatives.

The Crusader is a 21st century cannon that is opposed by defense reformers inside and outside the Pentagon but which has considerable support on Capitol Hill because of the jobs it brings to various lawmakers' districts.

The Senate is still working on its own defense spending blueprint.
