A bill soon to be debated by the U.S. Senate includes funding for destroying chemical weapons stored in Pueblo.
Colorado Senator Wayne Allard says 20 million dollars has been added to a defense bill to build facilities at the Pueblo Chemical Depot as well as at a site in Kentucky. He says that brings the total money set aside for the two projects to 53 (m) million dollars.
The Pentagon had considered removing the weapons instead of destroying them at the depot but dropped the idea after lawmakers objected. Under an international treaty, the government must destroy the weapons by 2012.
