MIDDLETOWN  A defense appropriations bill unveiled by a Senate panel
Tuesday includes $1 million to continue investigating the health
problems of former Iowa Army Ammunition Plant workers.

The money is part of a 2004 Pentagon budget bill totaling $369 billion
making its way in different forms through both chambers of Congress.

The IAAP funds will be used by the University of Iowa's College of
Public Health to continue screening former Department of Defense workers
who possibly were exposed to hazardous chemicals or radiation at the
munitions plant five miles west of Burlington.

"It's really going to be needed," Howard Nicholson, coordinator of the
DOD health study, said Tuesday of the $1 million.
