The Nation

June 26, 1986

The House Armed Services Committee overwhelmingly approved legislation to reorganize the military by giving more power to commanders who direct combat forces and limiting Navy independence, congressional sources said. The bill, which differs from a Senate version approved in May, was endorsed by a 38-5 vote in a closed session and is expected to go to the floor of the House next month, the sources said. The Navy and its infantry, the Marine Corps, oppose the House committee bill.
