WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the announced release of more than $30 million of CARES Act relief funding for airports in Arizona's Fourth Congressional District:
"Arizona is one of the fastest growing places in America, and our airports are critical to our economic development and support thousands of jobs. When I flew to DC to vote for the CARES Act, I knew the bill was far from perfect, but it would provide immediate relief to Arizona's hard-working employees, families, small businesses, and it would provide certainty to our economic future. This is just one of the critical and necessary parts of the bill I supported. As we transition out of quarantine and back to a more normal life, it is critical we ensure Arizona's airports remain operational and ready to serve our communities."
