Sens. Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins announced Monday that two Maine airports will receive a combined $191,514 from the Federal Aviation Administration as part of continued work to update master plan studies at various airports.

Funding will be allocated as follows:

. $41,514 to the town of Lincoln. This supplement to the master plan will evaluate land use and identify potential property acquisitions.
