WASHINGTON (KRQE) - The White House on Monday released a plan for the 2011 federal budget, which includes $284 million for New Mexico military installations.

The money for the Clovis-area base includes nearly $76.6 million for facilities relating to MC-130J operations, including a simulator facility and aircraft parking facilities.
