WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), today announced that several Iowa regional airports will receive a total of $6,974,811. The funds will be used to improve airports’ ability to cope with inclement weather and to maintain and update existing airport facilities across Iowa.
“Airports in Iowa are impacted by so many elements: be they weather, general wear and tear or time. This funding will ensure that our airports are running safely during every month of the year: from the winter snows to the heat of summer, making travel safe for passengers,” said Harkin.
Today’s funding comes from the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Harkin is a senior member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds the DOT.
