STUPAK ANNOUNCES $726,409 FOR AIRPORTS IN
ALPENA, DELTA AND CHIPPEWA COUNTIES

[flag bar page separator]

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak (D-Menominee) announced three airports in northern Michigan have received grants totaling $726,409 for airport maintenance and improvements. The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.

“This federal funding will help these airports better provide critical services to communities in northern Michigan,” Stupak said. “I am pleased the FAA has made this investment in our local airports and the individuals and businesses they serve.”

Alpena County Regional Airport received a grant of $85,500 to acquire friction measuring equipment, specifically a decelermeter and tow vehicle, to replace equipment that has worn out.

Delta County Airport in Escanaba received a grant of $179,209 to install a 10 foot perimeter fence to enhance security and prevent wildlife from entering the airport.

The Chippewa County International Airport near Sault Ste. Marie received a grant of $461,700 to install lighted signs on Runway 16/34 and make repairs to the pavement to meet marking requirements and maintain structural integrity.

This funding is provided to the FAA through the regular federal appropriations process and is awarded through competitive grants.

If the insurance companies made any noise, I never heard it.

Couldn't because of muzzling regulations. One or two tried to warn their customers, got slapped down by the bureaucrats.

What infuriates me is that when Pelosi started running for Speakership in '06 she turned the news cycle from 24/7 news from Iraq to 24/7 news on the "terrible Bush economy".

Well, lo and behold she won the Chair and THAT'S when the economy really tanked. The Dems WANTED to tank the economy and how better to divide conservatives than making conservatives think Bush "grew Gov't"?

Yet, conservatives even today continue to blame Bush despite that we now have the Party in office that REALLY grows Gov't. And today we see the fruit of all their diabolical lies.

Should the House pass the Senate bill and the package of reconciliation fix-its tonight, Senators will take over the reconciliation fix-its as soon as Tuesday.

That will set in motion a week or longer parliamentary floor battle with points of order, references to the budget act, the Byrd Rule and more.

For an appetizer, take a look at Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member Judd Gregg’s statement tonight.

“Immediately after receiving the final reconciliation bill language, Senate Republican staff was ready and willing to meet with Senate Democratic staff and the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss the fact that the House reconciliation bill may be brought down by the 310(g) point of order in the Senate. Senate Democrats are mysteriously unavailable until after the House votes on the health care bill tonight. The Senate Democrats appear to be pushing off this meeting so that House Democrats will remain in the dark about what is likely to happen to the reconciliation bill on which many have staked their careers in Congress. House Democrats should be alarmed by this latest development, since the survival of the reconciliation bill is clearly at risk in the Senate.”

If Republicans can get the parliamentarian to agree with them even once, whatever ultimately passes the Senate will have to go back to the House.
And Democrats in the House quietly admit that its very likely they will have to vote again on the reconciliation fixes at some point down the road.

I’m going to have a hard time voting for her.

I’m about as anti RINO as I can possibly be. I will not under any circumstances support someone who can’t grasp what John MeCain has been and why we should not support him.

Sarah has destroyed my respect for her.

John MeCain teamed up with George Soros, Terresa Heinz Kerry, and the Tides Foundation to form a political entity. I’m going to vote for someone who can’t grasp the negative effect of stuff like this? Hell no!

You said Republicans tripled the size of government.

Ok show the number of agencies tripling.

Show the number of government employees tripling when Republicans “held control” for those 12 year.Guess what? the number of government workers did not increase. Get it yet? So government didn’t increase. is that simple enough for you to understand.

you try to say it is the dollar value that shows government growth and that is deception because inflation, population growth, military spending, wars , 9/11 etc are not figured into that dollar value so you are lying and your web site is wrong or spinning to attract attention.

Obama has become persona non grata, and Rats party non grata, to the large majority of Americans who did not want Bummercare. Illegales and their fate is a wild card, however there are still plenty of Americans who didn’t get off their seats in past years who will want to vote now.

Juan typifies a large group of Americans that I fail to understand.
He absolutely believes that this bill will not be “un payable”, that medicare and SS are NOT broke, etc.

Juan is an intelligent and not mean spirited man. i know many like him...what happens that their ideology is so compelling? and its not just because he is black, many , many white Dems are just like him.
