Also under consideration is a less than daily flight with a leisure carrier.</p><p>If approved, the bill would direct $2 million for each of the next five fiscal years to communities that already have federal Small Community Service Grants. Bowling Green has received a $500,000 grant in that category. Sat, 09 Feb 2013 18:04:59 +0000 Joe Corcoran 26212 at http://wkyufm.org
