Improvements on the Way for Lea County Airport

LEA COUNTY, NM (KWES)

Improvements are in the works for the Lea County Airport.
It's all thanks to the Federal Aviation Administration.
They're giving New Mexico State $6.1 million.
Part of the money is going to the airport in Hobbs for rehabilitation and development projects.
New Mexico Senators say the grant will help boost the economy by increasing travel access, supporting economic development and encouraging business expansion.
