DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Members of the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee and representatives of the 148th Air National Guard Fighter Group will be in Washington, D.C. next week to secure federal funding for a runway extension.  While at the Capitol, the group will meet with Senators Klobuchar and Franken and Congressman Rick Nolan as well as FAA officials to discuss plans for the Air Guard and Duluth International Airport infrastructure needs.  Securing funding to lengthen the existing cross wind runway from 5700 to 8000 feet is essential for airport traffic and to support the mission of the 148th.
