Reliable Replacement Warheads Rejected by House

Back in April, I reported on the White House's back-door attempts to secure funding for a new generation of nuclear weapons—a missile called a Reliable Replacement Warhead. Well, Congressional Democrats weren't fooled by the administration's efforts and today the House Armed Services committee zeroed out funding for the project in the Defense Authorization bill.

Ten million dollars for the project still remain in the Senate's version of the bill, which will be reconciled with the House legislation later this year.
