H.Amdt.181 to H.R.2028. Rep. John Garamendi’s (D-CA) amendment would have cut $25 million from a life extension program for the W80 warhead for a new nuclear cruise missile known as the Long Range Standoff Weapon (LRSO). The bill that this amendment applied to accelerated the life extension program for the W80 warhead by two years, moving the acquisition date from 2027 to 2025, despite the fact that the current nuclear armed cruise missile and its accompanying warhead aren’t slated for retirement until the 2030s. In other words, the House voted to waste taxpayer dollars on accelerating plans to build a redundant and destabilizing nuclear cruise missile and warhead. Failed, 149-272.
