Proposal would delay end of C-130 work in Oklahoma

Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY — A proposed amendment in the U.S. House Armed Services Committee would — if accepted — delay efforts to end a program in Oklahoma City to upgrade the cockpits of U.S. Air Force C-130 transport planes.
Boeing Co. spokeswoman Jennifer Hogan said Wednesday the proposed amendment will go to the House Armed Services Committee. The amendment calls for a cost-benefit analysis of ending the C-130-Avionics Modernization Program versus continuing the program.
The committee is to meet Thursday.
Boeing announced in 2010 it would move about 550 employees from Long Beach, Calif., to Oklahoma City to work on upgrades to both the C-130 and the B-1 bomber.
President Barack Obama's federal budget proposal announced in February called for ending the C-130 program at an estimated savings of $2.3 billion through 2017.
