“As we work to emerge from this pandemic, safe and reliable air travel is critical to keeping Michiganders connected to important markets and destinations,” said U.S. Sen Gary Peters, a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, in a press release. “I was proud to help enact this funding to help airports across the Upper Peninsula overcome COVID-related revenue shortfalls, retain staff and better protect traveler health and safety.” “These investments will make air travel safer and more reliable,” said U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow in a press release. “It will help our communities rebound from the pandemic and encourage businesses to invest in the region and create jobs.”
