(This amendment provides $2.0 million from the general fund in fiscal year 2020 to the Roanoke Regional Airports Commission to support a two-year initiative to improve public access to the national air transportation system with a nonstop flight from Roanoke to Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit and Boston. The service would connect Roanoke to some of its top unserved markets and remedy the deficiency of access to the western region of the U.S.)
