“These funds for airports are some of the first fruits of that legislation,” U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, who is the ranking member of the chamber’s Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, said. “Targeted investments will help airports all across the state make repairs and improvements that will support travelers and boost our economy for decades to come.”
