Local projects get federal funding
Franklin County Times
Congressman Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) announced yesterday that he was able to secure federal funding in the Fiscal Year 2008 Omnibus appropriations bill for two projects in Franklin County.
The final bill passed the House of Representatives Wednesday evening and now moves to President Bush for signature.
"This year has been one of the more difficult years that I can remember as far as the appropriations process is concerned," Aderholt said. "While money has been hard to come by in many instances, I'm pleased that North Alabama, and particularly Franklin County, received federal funding for some important area projects."
Among the Franklin County projects receiving funding in FY 2008 are:
"These projects are particularly important for our area. They'll help add to our public safety while generally improving the quality of education for our area."
