Chemical Weapons Disposal At KY Facility Gets Financial Boost

A budget increase, proposed by President Bush, will help the disposal of chemical weapons at Blue Grass Army Depot in Madison County.

The increase commits about 400 million dollars to a program to help with chemical weapon disposal.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell ordered a disposal deadline for chemical weapons at the Madison County facility to be completed by 2017. That deadline was approved by Congress last November.
