DOT announces $3,873,689 in NMI airport funding:
The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded five grants, totaling $3,873,689, to the Commonwealth Ports Authority. Four go to the Francisco C. Ada Saipan International Airport: $1,056,579 to fund the seventh and final phase of construction for a regional Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Training Facility; $1,000,000 to fund the construction phase for rehabilitation of 725 feet of the existing Taxiway B and 550 feet of the existing Taxiway H needed to maintain structural integrity of the pavement; $700,000 towards the acquisition of a replacement Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting vehicle; and $697,110 to fund the final phase of improvements to the terminal building that are needed to improve passenger safety. The fifth grant of $420,000 will fund an update to the existing airport master plan study to show current and future needs of the Tinian International Airport. Congratulations to CPA
Focusing on improving school meals in NMI schools:
Now that we have the $31.5 million food stamp pilot program for the Northern Mariana Islands enacted, my next goal is to make sure funding for school meals and other programs that feed our children is on par with the rest of the U.S. This week, the House Education and the Workforce Committee held an oversight hearing on the Child Nutrition Act with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack as our witness. I took the opportunity to get a commitment from the Secretary to work with me to assess whether we need to increase funding for the Public School System breakfast, lunch, and summer feeding programs. While labor costs are lower in the Marianas than on the mainland, shipping and energy costs are significantly higher. The block grant PSS receives for student meals was established in 1991 and has a built-in growth factor, but basically the amount of funding is on automatic pilot, unrelated to the current number of students served or the costs of meals. This year’s grant of $11.3 million prov
Appropriators agree to keep increase for NMI sewer and water grants:
The House Appropriations Committee has approved my request to continue the 1.5 percent set-aside for sewer and water projects in the Northern Mariana Islands and other insular areas. This will be the seventh year the Committee has agreed to increase funding for sewer and water CIP from the statutory 0.28 and 0.33 percent, respectively. Without the change, the Northern Marianas would have received about $7 million. With the change we have received over $50 million. And much of that money went into 24-hour water for Saipan. The FY16 Interior and Environment Appropriation, H.R. 2822, keeps Assistance to Territories at current levels. The Commonwealth received a total of $12.5 million in CIP and other grants from that budget category in the last fiscal year. The Committee also agreed with me that funding for Compact Impact discretionary funds should not be decreased. H.R. 2822 will be considered on the House floor next week.
