MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The chairman of the House Appropriations
Subcommittee on Defense, Rep. John Murtha, is visiting Mobile.
Alabama Reps. Jo Bonner and Artur Davis arranged the visit
Thursday so Murtha could discuss the military tanker refueling
project with business and community leaders in Mobile.
Davis said he and Bonner have been making the case for why
Mobile is the best city and Northrop Grumman/EADS is the best team
to build the tanker. The Boeing Co. is also competing for the $35
The Air Force selected Northrop Grumman/EADS for the project
last year, but then it reopened the bidding after the Government
Accounting Office found flaws with the decision.
