House Refuses to Kill Trident 2

Associated Press

The House, struggling to agree on a defense spending bill, refused today to kill the powerful, submarine-based Trident 2 missile, one day after it approved deep cuts in the MX missile program.

The House defeated 342 to 79 a proposal to eliminate $582 million for the Trident 2, a missile with accuracy and extended range similar to those of the land-based MX missile.
