SPRINGFIELD -- The Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport also gets $250,000 from the grant to bring in more service. The money will be used to lure in a new "low-cost" carrier.

It could offer flights to several destinations including Florida, Myrtle Beach and Las Vegas. Maybe even Phoenix.

Bloomington-Normal also gets money. No time table for when any new flights might start.
