Mayor Copenhaver thanks U.S. Senator John Boozman for his recommendation to the Senate Committee on Appropriations for $5 million in support of upgrades at Jonesboro Municipal Airport.
“I want to personally thank the Senator for continuing to champion the needs of Northeast Arkansas,” Copenhaver said. “I expressed to him several of Jonesboro’s concerns in my last visit to D.C., and he was very gracious with his time. I continue to be impressed with Senator Boozman’s commitment to Jonesboro.”
Boozman’s request is for fiscal 2023 from the federal departments of Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and related agencies. It will be considered by the Senate Appropriations Committee, on which Boozman sits.
If these funds are secured, they will be used in conjunction with work completed with dollars secured by U.S. Representative Rick Crawford last year. “Both are personal friends and advocates for Jonesboro,” Copenhaver said.
