Bell/Pantex Funding

A new spending bill passed by the US House will send billions of dollars to the Amarillo Area.

We first told you about the funding when the house began working on the bill last spring.

It includes more than $3 billion dollars for the V-22 Osprey, and more than $540 million for the Marine H-1 helicopter.

Bell Helicopter makes both in Amarillo.

The bill also will send more than $550 million to Pantex.

They will use the money to make a number of safety upgrades at the facility.

The bill still needs President Bush's signature.
