CHICO, Calif. - The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that it will provide $1,998,500 in grant funding to rehabilitate the taxiway at the Chico Municipal Airport. 

Congressman Doug LaMalfa, who served on the Aviation Subcommittee on the House Transportation Infrastructure Committee, released a statement on the funding. 

"The Chico Municipal Airport is an important hub for many types of aviation in Butte County. Rural airports often rely on DOT grants to help modernize the airport's infrastructure and improve safety. In this case, funding will be primarily used to revitalize existing taxiways, and I look forward to seeing its implementation soon," he said.
