Congress increases scrutiny of tanker contract

The House is looking for more oversight on the Air Force’s tanker contract. The House Appropriations Committee ruled that any cost overruns of $5 million or more must be reported within 30 days.

Bloomberg reports, the new oversight underscores Congress’ continued scrutiny of the tanker contract. Boeing beat EADS for the $35 billion contract last year.
