Republicans Propose Cutoff For Bosnia Mission

Compiled From Wire Services
 

Two high-ranking House Republicans proposed Thursday cutting off funds for the U.S. troop presence in Bosnia by Sept. 30.

Reps. John Kasich, R-Ohio, chairman of the House Budget Committee, and Floyd Spence, R-S.C., chairman of the House National Security Committee, introduced legislation that would effectively end the U.S. troop presence in the Balkans nine months early. Two Democrats were co-sponsoring the bill.

Kasich and Spence said the Clinton administration has already gone back on its promise to bring the troops home after a year. That deadline came and went last December.
