Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law led by Sinema and shaped by Kelly provides $6.2 million investment for Lake Havasu City’s airport and $1.3 million for Glendale’s airport
WASHINGTON – $7.5 million will be invested in Lake Havasu City and Glendale airports from the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law led by Senator Kyrsten Sinema and shaped by Senator Mark Kelly.
Lake Havasu City will receive $6.2 million, and Glendale will receive $1.3 million in Federal Aviation Administration grants for their airports, funded through Sinema and Kelly’s bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law’s Airport Improvement Program’s fiscal year 2022 supplemental.
“Today’s investments from our bipartisan infrastructure law to Lake Havasu City’s and Glendale’s airports will enhance safety, boost tourism, fuel jobs, and expand economic opportunities in both regions – we’re proud to secure these investments for these Arizona communities,” said Sinema, Chair of the Senate Aviation Safety, Operations, and Innovation Subcommittee, and co-author of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law.
“Thanks to these investments from our Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Lake Havasu City and Glendale airports will see more good-paying jobs, safety improvements, and economic opportunities. We’ll continue working to boost jobs and economic growth for communities across Arizona,” said Kelly.
Sinema and Kelly’s bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law includes $25 billion in additional investments for aviation infrastructure. The bipartisan law provides $15 billion in priority projects at every airport in the United States, $5 billion in competitive grants for terminal development and other landslide projects, and $5 billion in grants for strengthening Air Traffic Control towers and infrastructure.
Arizona airports are expected to receive a total of at least $360 million in additional federal support over the next five years from the bipartisan infrastructure law.
