Cannon to Receive Funding

Cannon Air Force Base will soon receive 13-million dollars from the Pentagon.
   

That word tonight from New Mexico's congressional delegation. 

Back in November the group asked the Pentagon to release the funds for a fuel storage and distribution system at the base near Clovis.
  

The money was stalled when Cannon was threatened with closure in the 2005 base realignment and closure process.
  

A new mission was found for the base last June, keeping it open.
