Shelby Announces $38,760 for Tuscaloosa Regional Airport

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration will award $38,760 to Tuscaloosa Regional Airport.  Tuscaloosa Regional Airport will use this funding to conduct a study to determine the environmental effects of a runway extension.

“As Tuscaloosa Regional Airport expands to meet the increased needs of travelers to the area, it is critical that it make every effort to protect and preserve the environment surrounding it,” said Shelby.
