Lawmakers Aim to Stop Pentagon From Destroying GE Engine

The chairman of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee plans to prohibit the Defense Department from destroying or discarding engines made by General Electric Co. for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

The Pentagon canceled last month the alternative engine, known as the F136, over the objections of congressional supporters including committee chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, a California Republican.
