The Yuma Marine Corps Air Station and Yuma International Airport stand to receive $6.8M in project funding over the next five years if the current version of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is passed and signed into law.
The current version of the Act was championed by Arizona U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Ohio U.S. Senator Rob Portman, passing the Senate on a 69-30 vote. The House will take up the measure when it returns from recess later this month. The $1T bill includes $25B for repair and upgrades at U.S. airports.
Sinema chairs the Senate Aviation Safety, Operations and Innovation Subcommittee.
Yuma Airport officials note the allocation, along with earlier appropriations, will help the airport advance planned capital improvements. (Source)
