ARTICLE: Pennsylvania Governor Corbett: State, Federal Investment to Enhance 27 Airports

When added to the federal AIP funds means that $12.6 million is available to improve the infrastructure of the state’s and the federal aviation system. In announcing the Commonwealth’s grants, Governor Tom Corbett noted that aviation there involves more than 290,000 direct jobs. That’s probably a conservative number and when secondary jobs are calculated, there’s an even bigger impact. That’s a good investment, particularly when employment is such a priority.
