WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will provide approximately $15 million in federal funding to the Philadelphia International Airport.

“This funding will help repair our runways and ensure the safety of travelers flying in and out of the Philadelphia International Airport,” said Senator Casey. “It will also provide much needed jobs for workers in Southeastern Pennsylvania.”
