WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons, both Delaware Democrats, have announced that the Army Corps of Engineers' plan for dredging the Delaware River includes $20 million more in funding for this fiscal year.
The senators announced the additional funding on Tuesday. Army Corps funding for the project now totals $42 million for fiscal year 2013.
