Bill increasing airport grants headed for Governor’s desk

HB 1018, sponsored by Rep. Tom Dent (R-Moses Lake), increases the allowable grant amount from $250,000 to $750,000 that the Department of Transportation may provide for general aviation projects through the Airport Aid Grant Program. The program provides financial assistance to public-use airports in Washington.

The bill sailed through the Legislature with no amendments, and unanimity from both sides of the aisle. The bill has been delivered to Governor Inslee for his signature.
