Senate President Ronald D. Kouchi (D-Kaua‘i, Ni‘ihau) announces that Governor David Y. Ige has released funding for two major Capital Improvement Projects related to the Lihu‘e Airport on Kaua‘i.
A total of $6.7 million will be used to finance additional land acquisition costs at the airport, along with construction costs for the ticket lobby and hold room improvements.
