STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s U.S. senators are visiting Sikorsky’s headquarters in Stratford to highlight how local defense contractors will benefit from spending in a recently approved federal budget.

Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy will be joined by U.S. Rep. Rose DeLauro on the visit Tuesday to the helicopter division of United Technologies Corp.

The budget bill includes money for Sikorsky’s work on helicopters for the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force.

President Barack Obama on Friday signed a $1.1 trillion spending bill that funds the federal government through the end of September.
