Illinois airport fund would finance improvement projects

Illinois legislators have proposed to create an airport improvement fund. The fund would allow the state department of transportation to allocate grant money to airport authorities for airport improvements that are not eligible for federal funding. "We're very pleased that Illinois legislators are showing such strong interest in maintaining the state's airports," said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs.
