Madison County Judge/Executive Kent Clark, who also is a member of the CDCAB, said he was grateful for all the help legislative representatives have given toward the chemical weapons destruction project.
“Representative Chandler is to be commended for his efforts and, with Senator (Mitch) McConnell achieving the same objectives in the Senate. We are feeling pretty good right now,” Clark said.
The appropriation bill also includes funding that if passed by the senate, will accelerate the destruction of chemical weapons being stored in Pueblo, Colo., changing the deadline from 2020 to 2017.
“With Representative Chandler’s diligence and leadership, we are closer to getting the level of support we need here in Kentucky and in Colorado to move forward aggressively,” Williams said.
