Panels Reject Missiles for Saudis

April 23, 1986|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Both the Senate and House foreign affairs committees recommended today that Congress reject the White House proposal to sell more missiles to Saudi Arabia, moving lawmakers closer to a showdown with President Reagan on the issue.

The Republican-controlled Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 11 to 6 for a resolution disapproving the $354-million missile sale. The House Foreign Affairs Committee, controlled by a Democratic majority, passed a similar disapproval resolution on a voice vote.
