WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRPROUD) — Senator Bill Cassidy says airports in Louisiana will be receiving $35,689,010 from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

He said the funding is in addition to Louisiana’s annual funding under the Airport Improvement Program because of the IIJA and only accounts for the 2022 fiscal year.

The Baton Rouge airport will be awarded $3,116,982, according to Cassidy.

“This is just the beginning of the billions in resources coming to Louisiana and would not have happened without passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill,” said Cassidy. “Improving our airports is essential for our state to catch up, attract investment, and create opportunity.”
