President Signs MX Funding Resolutions

April 05, 1985|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Reagan on Thursday signed two congressional resolutions providing $1.5 billion to build a second installment of 21 MX missiles.

The resolutions were approved in a series of four hard-fought votes in the Senate and House, culminating in final House approval March 27 of the measure appropriating the money. Reagan argued that the missiles were needed so that the United States could negotiate from a position of strength in the arms-control talks in Geneva, Switzerland.
