The bill includes $5.8 million for a new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Senate to be located near the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum. The JFK Museum will get $22 million for upgrades.
The bill also includes: $5 million for a visitor pavilion for the Boston Harbor Islands National Park; $3 million to help preserve New England fisheries; $1.7 million for land acquisition at Cape Cod National Seashore; and $1.4 million for energy-efficient insulation development.
Dozens of smaller school, transit and environmental projects will also receive funding.
