The U.S. House Appropriations Committee voted Friday to support several of Rep. Joseph D. Courtney’s funding requests for eastern Connecticut projects, including $2.5 million for upgrades to the Enfield train station, $2 million for fixing crumbling foundations, and $792,000 for repairs to the New England Motorcycle Museum building in Vernon.

To become law, the funding bill would require approval by the full House and Senate and would have to be signed by President Joe Biden.
