Braley helped secure $2 million to fund renovation project in 2009

 

Davenport, IA – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today attended the reopening of the Iowa National Guard’s Aviation Readiness Center, lauding the renovation of the facility and saying it will enhance the ability of the Guard to save lives and protect Iowa.  In 2009, Braley helped secure $2 million to fund the renovation project.

 

“The renovation of the Iowa National Guard’s Aviation Readiness Center helped create jobs here in the Quad Cities and has given the facility new life,” Braley said.  “I’m proud of my work helping to make this needed renovation happen.  This beautiful facility is a great addition to the Davenport area and will help the Iowa National Guard do its job.”

 

The $2.1 million project completed today is the second part of a two-phase project that renovated the entire National Guard facility, originally constructed in 1972.  The first phase of the renovation was completed in 2010.
