Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney announced a federal investment in the Orange County Airport of $65,160 on Sept. 1. The money will go towards efforts to ensure the airport complies with new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety standards—removing obstructions like trees and buildings, and ensuring lighting and paint complies with FAA regulations.

The first investment goes towards a study to assess possible physical obstructions to safe air travel around the airport, especially tall trees.
