Denver airport reaped farm subsidies
DENVER (AP) – Denver International Airport reaped about $400,000 in federal agricultural subsidies
between 1995 and 2003 by leasing up to 18,000 acres of its land to farmers.
About two-thirds of the money went to the farmers.
The airport stopped receiving the farm payments in 2004 but now gets federal subsidies for grasslands
erosion control.
