(KSL News) Congress has approved a defense budget bill that includes a lot of money for operations here in Utah.

The $471 billion bill is one of the few spending bills not facing the threat of a veto from President Bush.

In it, about $89 million is allocated for defense firms and military installations in Utah, including at least $16 million for rocket booster producer ATK.

Money also will go to Utah National Guard and reserve units who served in Iraq in order to buy replacement equipment.
