The measure would authorize 35.212 new missiles and 2.700 aircraft for the anned forces and 5.1 new warships for the Navy. It also would authorize vast new research and development efforts, including $32 million for work on the design of a new bomber and manned interceptor for the Air Force. The lawmakers beat down an effort t» chop the bomber and interceptor noney out of the bill. The administration did not request it and may not even use the authority. The bill passed Thursday sets only the spending ceiling on such programs, actual appropriations must be considered separately later. The House rejected a move by Rep. Craig Hosmer, R-Calif, to require that the Navy's new aircraft carrier be nuclear-powered instead of using conventional power, as or3ered by Defense Secretary Robert S.
