Senator Udall Gets $1.2 Million for Eastern New Mexico

As part of the $410 billion Omnibus Spending Bill, US Senator Tom Udall says he included over one million dollars for Eastern New Mexico industries.

Over $200 thousand is going to a dairy consortium so they can boost research on improved dairy production.

And more than $950 thousand is going to the Sapphire Energy Algae so that company can create and grow technology that turns the algae into fuel.

Udall says the algae company could create 100 jobs.
