On the eve of a congressional vote today to extend production of the B-2 bomber, the Pentagon has stepped up its fight against the program by sending a letter to the House saying the military does not need the aircraft. But B-2 supporters brushed aside the opposition, saying it would have little impact on the vote and predicted that the House would appropriate $493 million as a down payment to buy 20 additional bombers during the next decade.

Northrop Grumman Corp.'s proposal to sell the Pentagon 20 additional B-2 Stealth bombers passed one of its last key tests in Congress on Thursday, when the House voted down a last-ditch effort to cut about $500 million in initial B-2 production funding. By a razor-thin margin of 213 to 210, the House defeated an amendment offered by Rep. John R. Kasich (R-Ohio) that would have deleted the B-2 funding from the 1996 Defense Appropriations Bill.

The B-2 bomber took a hit Thursday when a Senate committee voted in closed session to reject funding for an expanded fleet of Stealth bombers. The House recently approved a plan to build more B-2s, but the Senate Armed Services Committee followed the Clinton Administration's recommendation and provided only enough funding to complete the planned fleet of 20 planes. The committee decision is a big setback for the B-2 program and its prime contractor, Northrop Grumman Corp.
