(2008-06-10)
(wgvu) - IT APPEARS MICHIGAN AIRPORTS WON'T LOSE
TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FEDERAL AID FOR IMPROVEMENT
PROJECTS AFTER ALL.
FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS SAY THEY UNDERSTAND
THE AIRPORTS ARE IN A TOUGH SPOT BECAUSE STATE LAWMAKERS HAVEN'T
ALLOCATED MONEY THAT'S BEEN APPROVED BY WASHINGTON.
FAA SPOKESMAN TONY MOLINARO SAYS THERE'S CURRENTLY NO PLAN TO
GIVE 46 MILLION DOLLARS IN DISCRETIONARY FUNDING TO OTHER STATES.
AIRPORTS MISSED A JUNE 1ST DEADLINE TO TELL THE FAA OF THEIR
INTENTION TO USE FEDERAL MONEY TO EXTEND RUNWAYS AND MAKE OTHER
UPGRADES. THAT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF PARTISAN DISAGREEMENTS IN THE
STATE LEGISLATURE.
