Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, tonight voted for a bill that will direct more than $6 million to investments at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. The Military Construction/VA Appropriations Bill for fiscal year 2013 was approved by the House of Representatives on a 407 to 12 vote.
"Naval Air Station Whidbey Island is not only an integral part of our community, it is a strategically important base for our nation," Larsen said. "Investments in Naval Air Station Whidbey Island like this demonstrate our continued commitment to the base."
Naval Air Station Whidbey Island will receive $6,272,000 for an EA-18G Flight Simulator Facility to be constructed in 2013.
