By Kevin Lavery, KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Boeing's St. Louis area facilities could receive billions in federal funding next fiscal year. U.S. Senator Kit Bond make that announcement today during a tour of Boeing's F/A-18 EF Super Hornet assembly plant.

The budget request includes $10 million to replace the Navy's EA-6B strike aircraft and $120 million to build two Super Hornets. The appropriations bill must still clear the full House and Senate.
