SM-6 Gets Cut
Both House and Senate appropriators slashed about half of
the Navy's request to reprogram funds to complete efforts for Standard
Missile-6 supplemental test and evaluation, according to reprogramming
documents that reflect congressional action released Oct. 10 on the Pentagon
comptroller's website. The Navy had asked for $21 million to "verify correction
of deficiencies documented during initial operational test and evaluation" to
support a full-rate production decision in fiscal year 2013, but the House Appropriations
Committee denied $11 million, reducing the approved amount to $10 million.
Senate appropriators wanted to cut about $1 million less than the House.
