Space Cuts Through Bureaucratic Red Tape, Delivers Funding for Richard Downing Airport

Press Release

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Continuing his efforts to provide crucial infrastructure investments to Ohio's 18th Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Zack Space (OH-18) today announced that the appropriations request he secured to extend the runway at the Richard Downing Airport will soon be on its way to airport administrators. After initially securing funding for the airport through the Congressional appropriations process, the request became tangled in bureaucratic red tape, endangering the completion of the project.

"This funding is absolutely crucial to bringing much-needed business home to Coshocton County," said Rep. Space. "The Richard Downing Airport has been waiting for this funding to come through to make an improvement to their facility, and I'm glad that we can claim a victory for Coshocton County."

$196,000 to extend the airport's runway was included in the FY2010 Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations bill, which cleared the House of Representatives last year.

Congressman Space has represented Ohio's 18th Congressional District since 2007. He has been working to restore integrity to the office, and to create the conditions to bring new industry and jobs to Ohio. Recently, Congressman Space launched FIGHTING TO RENEW OHIO, the second phase of his plan to provide long-term economic growth in Ohio's 18th Congressional District.
