Lynchburg Airport Tower Could Get Funding

Lynchburg, VA - There's a chance Lynchburg's airport control tower could be fully funded.

The U.S. Senate and House appropriations committee included full funding for the program as part of a bill that will be considered by Congress this week, according to the U.S. Contract Tower Association.

They thank the committees for helping the 252 airports with FAA contract towers, including Lynchburg.

Those were on the chopping block because of sequestration.
