New York State Sets to Revamp Aiports

New York State Sets to Revamp Aiports
New York's launched a statewide initiative to revitalize its airports including LaGuardia, JFK, Stewart, and Republic.
Vice President Joe Biden and Governor Andrew Cuomo are vowing to improve New York's airports.
Biden joined Cuomo on Monday as the governor announced a design competition to modernize and improve New York City's John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports.
Biden made headlines earlier this year for saying that LaGuardia resembled "a third world country."
Cuomo teased Biden about the comment but then said the vice president "was right."
Biden said the plans to refurbish those and two other New York airports complement the White House's "bold" plan to revitalize the nation's infrastructure.
The pair appeared at a news conference at a college near LaGuardia. Biden repeatedly praised his fellow Democrat, who's up for re-election next month.
