DURANGO — Rural airports in Durango and Gunnison could get more funding for security equipment under a bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton of Cortez added an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security spending bill on Thursday that would transfer $4 million from the Transportation Security Administration’s administration budget to the agency’s security screening budget.

According to the Durango Herald, the total $40 billion spending bill far under the White House’s recommended budget, and the Obama administration has threatened a veto.
