McMorris Rodgers Announces $24 Million Grant for Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport

WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 8, 2019) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today announced another huge grant for the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport. This new grant from the Department of Transportation totaling $24 million will help with continued efforts to construct a new runway at the airport. 

“These funds will continue to improve the Pullman-Moscow Airport which will, in turn, expand the services offered and further connect the Palouse, and all of Eastern Washington, with the rest of the world,” said Cathy. “I’m proud of the team in the Pullman community who have been working hard to see this project through. That’s why I’ve fought to secure five grants totaling more than $68 million for this project over the past two and a half years. Thank you to the Trump administration for making this a priority.” 

NOTE: This grant funding is part of more than $81.6 million Cathy has helped secure during the Trump administration for Eastern Washington airports, including:
