Patty in the News

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., announced Wednesday that she has included $63 million in federal defense work for Washington state companies, including a Bremerton firm, in the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations bill.

Dimension4, Inc., is slotted to get $2.5 million for graphics improvements and maintenance upgrades on an aging aircraft carrier radar system.

Murray helped pass the bill out of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee on Wednesday.

“This spending will create good jobs in Washington state and help our armed forces get the cutting-edge military equipment they need and deserve,” she said. “Washington state companies are at the forefront of research and innovation, and these contracts will give them the resources they need to continue developing new ways to keep our service members and country safe.”
