O'Rourke, Ronald
From the report: "The House and Senate Armed Services Committees, in their markups of the FY2010 defense authorization bill (H.R. 2647/S. 1390), both recommended approving the Administration's FY2010 funding request for the VH-71 program. The House Armed Services Committee, in its report (H.Rept. 111-166 of June 18, 2009) on H.R. 2647, stated: 'The committee supports a new acquisition plan which may incorporate more than a one platform solution to the needs of the President. The committee notes that [this CRS report] cites Navy estimates that a new acquisition program would cost $10.0 to $17.0 billion. Therefore, the committee strongly suggests that the Department of Defense consider continuing procurement of the current 'increment 1' helicopter for use as the normal transport for the President, and study other alternatives for Presidential transport in other situations. The committee notes that this approach will leverage on the investment already made by the taxpayer in developing a helicopter that would meet all normal requirements of the President.'"
