The Branson-Springfield Airport will lose anticipated federal funding. An increase in airport traffic demanded a change in FAA status from non-hub to hub. The net result is eligibility for a 68 million dollar terminal building will be unavailable.
Sen. Kit Bod, R-MO introduced legislation to extend FAA eligibility, noting Federal funds are neccesary fot the scpansion.
Airport officials were surprisingly confident that the airport will have a new terminal. The magic question is "Who will cover the tab?"
