FAA APPROVES $1 MILLION FOR AIRPORT PROJECTS IN MASSACHUSETTS, CARD SAYS

 FAA APPROVES $1 MILLION FOR AIRPORT PROJECTS IN MASSACHUSETTS,
 CARD SAYS
 WASHINGTON, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved more than $1 million in funding for five airport-related projects in Massachusetts, Secretary of Transportation Andrew H. Card Jr. announced today.
 The grants include $512,529 for a strategic assessment of air travel demands to help evaluate the need for a second major airport in Massachusetts.
 Card said: "The role of secondary airports is critical to meeting the nation's air travel demands. Too often, secondary and municipal airports are the silent partners in aviation, carrying cargo and passengers without the recognition that major airports receive. We are committed to making sure that the federal government holds up its end of the equation in helping finance the maintenance and expansion of these airports."
 The other four grants include $231,210 for a five-year environmental analysis at the Minuteman Airfield in Stow; $200,000 to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for statewide tree-clearing projects at selected airfields; $77,210 for the Fall River Municipal Airport; and $58,500 for a cargo feasibility study at the Barnes Municipal Airport in Westfield.
 Last week, Card announced approval of a $668,943 grant for the reconstruction of the Worcester Municipal Airport.
