    The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee recently approved $450,000 in federal funding for Delaware to improve avian flu preparedness and local irrigation systems.

    Sens. Joe Biden and Tom Carper, both Democrats, said Tuesday that $350,000 of the funds are designated for an irrigation program at the Delaware Department of Agriculture and $100,000 will go to the University of Delaware to upgrade avian flu diagnostic and biocontainment facilities.
