Rep. Maxine Waters Announces a $35.6 Million Grant for LAX 

WASHINGTON– Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today announcing that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded a $35.6 million grant to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in her congressional district, as part of its Airport Improvement Program (AIP):

“I am proud to announce that the FAA has awarded a $35.6 million airport improvement grant to LAX, the third busiest airportin the United States, which is located in my congressional district.  

“This grant will be used to construct a taxiway to connect the runway complexes on the north and south sides of the airport, thus allowing airplanes to safely and efficiently move to and from their assigned gates.  When completed, this new taxiway will improve efficiency and reduce congestion, taxi times and wait times for pilots and passengers.  It will also benefit the community surrounding the airport by reducing harmful emissions.

“I congratulate Denny Schneider, president of the Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion (ARSAC), for his support for this taxiway and his continuing advocacy for airport improvements that will reduce congestion in and around the airport and ensure that LAX is a good neighbor for the local community.

“Throughout my service in Congress, I have worked hard to ensure that LAX is safe and convenient for air travel passengers, while reducing the harmful emissions, traffic congestion, and noise that airport operations cause for the surrounding community.  I am pleased that LAX will be able to complete this taxiway and improve the efficiency of air travel to and from the great City of Los Angeles.”
