A House panel approved a resolution that would block a Pentagon contract to a company partly owned by Libya, a U.S. target for its support of terrorists. The action by the House Armed Services Committee followed a General Accounting Office ruling that the Marine Corps was within the law in deciding to award a contract for 187 tractors made by the Fiat-Allis company, a Fiat subsidiary, 15% of which is owned by Libya. The committee recommended unanimously that awarding of the contract be delayed until Congress reviews procurement laws.
