Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) applauded the Department of Transportation (DOT) for awarding Reno-Tahoe International Airport $26,281,250 in discretionary grants for much-needed updates.

“This funding will help support the ongoing project to improve Reno-Tahoe’s runways and get travelers where they need to go more safely and more quickly. We will keep working to make sure tourism and commerce into and out of the Silver State move smoothly and efficiently.”
