What Lawmakers Are Saying

In general, lawmakers on either side of the Air Force’s tanker recapitalization issue are taking a wait-and-see attitude toward the Pentagon’s new start. Those who support the Northrop Grumman-EADS team praise the Pentagon for saying it would not consider the interim World Trade Organization ruling, while those who support Boeing express concern that the interim WTO ruling will not be considered.
