It was slashed more than $1.5 billion below (he amount requested by the administration. The final vote on the $20.4 billion measure was 387 to 37. During almost 11 hours of sometimes heated debate, hawks successfully beat off 10 amendments designed to reduce overseas troop levels and trim or cancel funds for specific weapons systems. But House doves, fresh from their victory in the Cambodia robing issue, put together a coalition of fiscal conservatives and political liberals to force a $950 million across-the-board weapons spending cut. It was left up to the Pentagon to propose where specific reductions might be made to achieve this cult. This single big reduction, proposed by Rep. Les Aspin, D- Wis., held the weapons and research bill to its level in last year's budget plus 4.5 per cent to offset the effect of inflation. Aspin said there was no reason for weapons spending to increase in peacetime. Coupled with a $623.3 million cult made earlier by the House Armed Services Committee and approved by the full House, the weapons bill was more than $1.5 billion below the $22 billion requested by the administration. it -it \;% r -V.'
