Tester Announces More Than $300,000 For Miles City Airport

Senator helps secure $365,940 to reconstruct runway, rehabilitate and construct taxiways

In his continued efforts to #ConnectMT, U.S. Senator Jon Tester has secured more than $300,000 in federal funding to help the Miles City Airport reconstruct their runway, as well as rehabilitate and construct taxiways.

“In a state as big as Montana, air travel is critical to keeping folks connected, and this grant will make air travel in and out of Miles City quicker, safer, and more reliable than ever,” Tester said. “Whether it's by increasing tourism, facilitating business, or helping families and friends stay connected, our airports make our way of life possible.”

The $365,940 grant was awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP). As a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, Tester worked hard to reauthorize the Airport Improvement Program through last year's FAA Reauthorization Act. And as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Tester secured an additional $500 million in funding for the Airport Improvement Program in the 2019 budget bill.

Tester's #ConnectMT initiative seeks to connect folks across Big Sky Country—both online and in person—by investing in Montana's physical and digital infrastructure. Just this month, Tester secured more than $20 million for airports across Montana, including those in Billings, Bozeman, Kalispell, Great Falls, and Missoula.
