Secures Funding for Utah Projects
Washington DC-Congressman Jim Matheson said final passage of the fiscal year defense spending bill means more funding for US troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq and better benefits for their families stateside.
"Our men and women in uniform have performed magnificently, at great sacrifice. I am committed to providing everything they need to accomplish their mission and return home safely, said Matheson.

"These Utah firms and Utah employees have developed a number of innovative products that contribute to our national defense and I am pleased this funding will support that effort," said Matheson.
