VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - September 23, 2010) - Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE: PYT) announced today that on Thursday, September 16th, 2010, the United States Senate Appropriations Committee approved the Fiscal Year 2011 Defense Appropriations bill and as part of this bill, Senator Patty Murray (D, WA), a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, announced that she had included $1 million for PYNG Medical USA Corporation (Kirkland, WA) to design and develop the FASTInfo™ Patient Status Monitoring.
Senator Murray intends that this money will assist in creating jobs and in helping keep Washington State at the forefront of medical innovation and technology. Before the bill becomes law, it must be passed by the full Senate, reconciled with the House version, and sent to the President for signature. Pyng anticipates that, with only a short number of legislative days remaining prior to the midterm election, these next steps will likely occur when Congress reconvenes following the election.
