Thursday, August 30, 2018

WASHINGTON– George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport were awarded a total of $9,261,776 in federal grants, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced today. The funding comes through the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP).

“In our mobile society, we need infrastructure that can keep up with our increasing demands,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “Thanks to these grants, Houston-area airports will be more efficient and ultimately safer for travelling Texans.  I’m proud to have supported this funding in the Senate and grateful to the Trump Administration for supporting Texans travelling to and from Houston.”

George Bush Intercontinental Airport was awarded $6,111,776 to extend its runway.  William P. Hobby Airport was awarded $3,150,000 to acquire land for approaches.

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
