Army drops Halliburton penalty

The Army on Tuesday abruptly reversed itself and decided to pay all of Halliburton Co.’s fees to house and feed U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait after the company threatened to legally challenge the effort to penalize it.

Hours later, a spokeswoman for the Army Field Support Command in Rock Island, Ill., said the 15% penalty for the company’s KBR subsidiary amounting to an estimated $60 million a month would not be levied.
