receive funds

Congress has approved $50,000 for the Hoxie Police Department as part of an appropriations package.

The package awarded funds through the Departments of Transportation, Commerce, Justice, Health and Human Services, Education and Veterans Affairs for the 2010 fiscal year.

The funding awarded to the Hoxie Police department will help fund law enforcement programs and the purchase of equipment.

Arkansas was represented well as Mark Pryor and Marion Berry are members of the Senate and House Appropriations Committees, respectively.

"State and local governments are tightening their belts these days, trying to figure out how they are going to keep law enforcement officers on the streets, make necessary road repairs, spearhead new medical research and make improvements to community medical facilities," Senator Blanche Lincoln said. "Our delegation worked hard to secure critical funding for Arkansas that will help relieve the burden of these tight economic times and strengthen our state now and in the long run."

Berry said the federal dollars coming into the state through the appropriations package will help support economic development efforts by reinvesting in Arkansas.

"When we provide funding for critical projects such as infrastructure, healthcare and public safety we are taking immediate action to create jobs and strengthen our economy," he said.
