"The House has approved legislation that could permit termination of the Marine Corps’ multibillion-dollar amphibious Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle, giving Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates a victory in his attempt to reduce Pentagon spending on costly or unneeded programs. In approving the fiscal 2011 continuing resolution early Saturday, the House gave the Defense Department $145 million, which Gates can use to complete testing of the EFV landing craft or pay termination costs that would be due if he ended the contract immediately."
