Notes The administration requested $600 million for four aircraft that would replace F-15s lost in combat, after which the line would shut down. This earmark redirects money to ensure the line stays open, and deletes $140 million in shutdown costs. Conferees also said funds may be used to "explore options to develop an export variant of the F-22A."
