House Oversight Hearing on Tanker Contract Scheduled for July 15

Congressional interest in the Air Force's much-contested aerial refueling tanker contract is expanding. The House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing on July 15 to examine the actions of the Air Force in awarding the contract to Northrop Grumman and EADS North America. Boeing lost to the two companies and has successfully protested the award with the Government Accountability Office.
