Senate OKs Space-Arms Test

May 24, 1985|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted today to let the Pentagon go ahead with the final tests of an Air Force weapon designed to destroy Soviet satellites.

The Senate gave 74-9 approval to a proposal by Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) to allow three final-stage tests next year, as long as President Reagan tells Congress that the tests won't destroy negotiations aimed at banning the weapons. That vote came minutes after the Senate had rejected, 51 to 35, a testing ban proposed by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.).
