RFD looking for federal funding


Federal funding could help RFD grow in the next few years.

Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos is working with Senator Dick Durbin, Chicago Rockford International Airport Executive Director Mike Dunn and the FAA on a multi-million dollar terminal expansion at the airport. Despite recent sequestration cuts, Bustos believes the project will get the needed funding.

There are two more job creation projects that the airport is working on. An announcement for those is expected in the next 12 months.
