WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.), top Democrat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, today announced nearly $600,000 in federal funding to enhance airfield infrastructure at Mercer County Airport in Bluefield and Mason County Airport in Point Pleasant.
 
“Investing in our airports and air transportation infrastructure, like in Mercer and Mason Counties, is one surefire way to grow our economy and create jobs.  I will continue to use my seniority and experience in working hard to bring home Federal resources to expand our existing businesses and attract new job opportunities, so that future generations of West Virginians can live and work and stay close to home and their families.”
