HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Sen. Barbara Mikulski is scheduled to attend an event in Hagerstown announcing $43 million in federal funds to continue the manufacture of Multirole Enforcement Aircraft.

The announcement is scheduled for Tuesday at Sierra Nevada Corp. with CEO Eren Ozmen and Vice President Tim Owings.

The project will protect about 200 jobs.

The MEA Program is part of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection aviation modernization plan to replace, upgrade and standardize their 30-year-old fleet.
