WASHINGTON. D.C. (March 7, 2017) – Earlier this week, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport (PUW) would be approved for a traditional Instrument Landing System as part of the airport’s runway realignment project. Today, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement regarding this important step in the development of the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport.
“This announcement by the FAA is great news and signifies an important hurdle for the Runway Realignment Project at the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport. This project will modernize the airport and encourage economic growth in the area, as well as expand the services and facilities available to our community. The Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport is a transportation gateway for the area, and this project will help the airport meet the needs of our community for decades to come.”
Note: Rep. McMorris Rodgers has had numerous meetings with Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson, Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Director Tony Bean, and other local officials over the years to stay updated on the project and assist where possible to ensure it becomes a reality.
