F-35 inventory soars in new Pentagon spending bill
By: Joe Gould   8 hours ago

WASHINGTON — Flying beyond 77 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters authorized by the 2019 defense policy bill, congressional appropriators are adding another 16 for a total of 93.

Congressional conferees on Thursday finalized a $674.4 billion defense spending bill for next year packaged with funding for the departments of Education, Labor, Health and Human Services, or Labor-HHS—and a continuing resolution through Dec. 7 for some other parts of the government.

As usual, appropriators used their annual defense spending bill to offer tweaks to the shopping list for military hardware in the annual defense policy bill, which President Donald Trump signed into law last month.
