Boulder City, Nev. – Today, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) toured the Boulder City Airport to discuss federal funding she’s secured to improve infrastructure and safety at the airport.
“From making sure the airport can get the funding it needs to build a new air traffic control tower to delivering grants to keep their runways up-to-date, I’ve fought to help the Boulder City Airport make infrastructure upgrades and keep travelers safe” said Senator Cortez Masto. “The airport is a vital part of Boulder City’s economy and I’ll continue working to make sure they have what they need to support residents and tourists alike.”
Since 2019, Senator Cortez Masto has helped deliver over $5.5 million in federal grant funding to the Boulder City Airport through government funding legislation for infrastructure improvements, including runway rehabilitation, and airport operations. She has also worked to ensure that Boulder City Airport can access a federal program that is providing funding for a new contract tower for air-traffic control.
