Outagamie Co. Airport Director concerned with how FAA furloughs are being stopped


GREENVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - While Congress approves ending furloughs of air traffic controllers nationwide by using federal airport improvement grant funds, one local airport is concerned about the move.

The money to prevent the mandatory federal spending cuts comes from the Airport Improvement Program, a grant program which funds up to 90 percent of eligible airport projects.

Outagamie County Regional Airport in Greenville is expecting $2.2 million in AIP funding for 2013. But Airport Director Marty Lenss says airport officials will be watching closely to see if any or all of that funding gets taken away.

Lenss says the money is earmarked for a runway apron project.
