U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support for the Gerald R. Ford International Airport to purchase an aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicle, rehabilitate runway lighting and build a deicing containment facility. The $3,800,000 grant comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation.

"Making sure passengers are able to travel to and from West Michigan is vital to the state's economy," said Stabenow. "This support will help ensure that the Gerald R. Ford International Airport can continue to keep people travelling safely and increase business activity to boost the economy."

"Airports are essential to tourism, economic development and cultural exchange," Levin said. "This federal funding will ensure that a vital cog in the West Michigan economy keeps humming."
