It’s gratifying to hear U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran voicing support for the Manhattan airport.

What would be more gratifying is if the federal government put the money into a runway project that it originally said it would.

Sen. Moran, who has a home in Manhattan, told The Mercury this past week that he was supportive of our community’s effort to rebuild the runway at a width of 150 feet, the same as the existing runway. The federal government initially told the city government that it would provide money to do that, then double-clutched and said it would only support a 100-foot-wide runway.
