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.
30 pieces of fiat silver.
What a cheap whore.
What timing for the announcement. One might think it was a payoff or something.
aha so he was bought off
Stupak should take the next flight out of there.
He REALLY thinks his Const. are stupid.
This is the action of a terrified Critter realizing he is going to be out of work in NOV.
Sold himself out for cheap,what a dumb WHORE.
Surely, Stupak didn’t announce this payoff money tonight?
So $726,409.00 is what it costs to sell out your country and its constitution.
He’s pretty much rubbing everybody’s nose in it with this announcement, don’t you think?
A whore is a whore.
When in Hell he will reflect that his life was so cheap, but too late to change his mind.
If true how can a obvious bribe like this be considered legal?
Bye bye, Bart. Why don’t you go ahead and start packing now.
