The Burpee Museum secures more funding to showcase Jane the Dinosaur. Congress will give the museum $1 million to display the exhibit and create a paleontology research center.

Congressman Don Manzullo told a group of local leaders about the federal funding. He says Jane will bring Rockford international attention and a major economic boost to the stateline. Museum leaders say the support has been exciting.

Crampton says the exhibit will cost about $7 million. With the federal funding comes a stipulation, local labor must be used for the project.
