 SEN. SPECTER ANNOUNCES FEDERAL GRANTS OF $18.6 MILLION
 FOR FIVE PENNSYLVANIA AIRPORTS
 WASHINGTON, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) announced today the Federal Aviation Administration has made a total of $18.6 million in Airport Improvement Grants to five Pennsylvania airports.
 The largest grant, $7,950,000, was made to the Johnstown Airport in Cambria County for a runway extension, Specter said.
 He said the other grants include:
 -- $4,450,000 to Greater Pittsburgh International Airport for the rehabilitation of a runway and taxiway, for the improvement of service roads and for the construction of a roadway tunnel;
 -- $2,992,000 to the Bedford County Airport for the construction of a runway and an apron;
 -- $1,652,000 to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Airport at Avoca for the overlay of an existing runway;
 -- $1,550,000 to the Erie International Airport for the rehabilitation of a runway and a taxiway.
 Specter, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said almost all of the $18.6 million is discretionary funding, that is, over and above what the airports are guaranteed in formula funding.
 "This means," he said, "that these airports had to compete for these funds with other airports seeking improvement monies."
