Boxer is far more pleased than I am

Dear Friend:

The Senate recently passed and sent on to President Obama an appropriations bill that will provide funding for two important projects in Butte County.  I was pleased to support the inclusion of these projects in the bill.

The Butte County Association of Governments will receive $2,450,000 to widen and pave Forest Highway 171.  During area wildfires, the road’s poor quality inhibited emergency crews’ response time.  It is expected that completion of the construction project will cut emergency response time in half.  The project will also create many new, local construction jobs.

The Butte County Literacy is for Everyone Project will also receive $150,000 to increase literacy among adults and at-risk children in Butte County.

I am pleased that these projects sought and will receive funding and look forward to seeing the results.


Barbara Boxer
United States Senator
