Military spending bill clears Senate hurdle

• Reuters
But lawmakers funded 10 more Boeing Co C-17 transport planes than the Pentagon asked for, at a cost of $2.5 billion.

Congress also kept alive the troubled VH-71 presidential helicopter, made by Lockheed, and an alternate engine made by General Electric Co and Rolls Royce Group Plc for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, despite the Pentagon's objections.

The bill includes 1,720 earmarks costing $4.2 billion for lawmakers' pet projects
