O'Hare Airport is getting $12 million in federal stimulus funds to rehabilitate one of its runways. Senator Dick Durbin says money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be used to fix an already existing runway to comply with Federal Aviation Administration annual runway inspections.

Durbin says the rehab project will provide jobs and improve O'Hare's long-term operations.
