Last year, the project had some funding but it was later pulled in a July transportation bill. Several cities also received funding to join an inter-city first responder system that allows police, fire and ambulance units from different cities to communicate. Monterey Park, West Covina and Irwindale received funding that totaled more than $1million to upgrade communications systems. Youth activity programs and family services programs also obtained funding, including the Asian Youth Center program in San Gabriel, which received $147,000 to build a youth center. In total, Dreier secured more than $11million, Rep. Grace Napalitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, brought in about $7.8million, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, about $8.8million and Rep. Hilda Solis, D-El Monte, about $2.3million. Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea, brought in more than $32million, including about $20million for a flood-protection program in Orange County. In addition to the city projects, local members of the House convinced federal agencies to appropriate more than $600million for the Jet Propulsion Lab in La Ca ada-Flintridge and more than $400million for a state program that helps pay the jailing costs for illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes. Other projects that received money include: $235,000 for training of volunteers to work with special-needs children in foster care. $234,000 to Pico Rivera and $192,000 to San Gabriel in library funding. $3million for the San Gabriel Basin Restoration Fund that pays for water-pollution cleanup in local reservoirs. $1million for the South Coast Air Quality Management District for a plug-in hybrid vehicle demonstration.
