U.S. Senate and House negotiators are planning to provide as much as $90 million to keep the production line running at an Ohio tank manufacturing plant.
The money for the tank plant will come against the wishes of the Obama administration, which for the past two years has asked Congress not to spend any money to refurbish the M1A1 Abrams battle tank.
Ohio senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman supported keeping the plant operating.
