Shelby Announces $893,997 for Huntsville International Airport

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration will release $893,997 for Huntsville International Airport.  Huntsville International will use this funding to expand its terminal building. 

“Huntsville is one of the fastest growing cities in the South,” said Shelby.  “With the Base Realignment and Closure Commission decision to relocate thousands of jobs to Redstone Arsenal, north Alabama should grow dramatically in the coming years.  The expansion of the terminal building will help meet the needs of the increased population traveling to, from and through Huntsville.”
