Yarmuth Statement on DOT Grant for Louisville International Airport

LOUISVILLE – Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the statement below regarding today’s announcement of an $11.25 million Department of Transportation grant being awarded to the Louisville Regional Airport Authority for upgrades to Louisville International Airport.

“It is great to see such a strong federal investment in Louisville International Airport, and I remain impressed by the continued enhancements and upgrades being made there. But we also have a massive list of unmet infrastructure needs here in Louisville and across the country, and we need the President and Congress to tackle that challenge head on. I am committed to making major investments in our roads, bridges, air travel, and other needs, and I continue my call for Congress and the White House to work together on a major, bipartisan infrastructure initiative that will create good-paying jobs, generate economic growth, and keep us competitive in the global market.”
