Rochester, N.Y. - In order to save the furloughed workers conges moved money from capital improvements to pay the wages of the workers.

Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks says that this is more of a problem for the Rochester airport. "They’ve solved the problem in one area but they have compromised public safety and passenger safety in another area."

She said those projects are requires by the Federal government which means they have to get done “What will happen is a lot of the airlines that pay to operate our airport will have to help us subsidize the projects they are going to pass the costs along to customers which means we could see some higher fares.”

The increasing costs will have to now cover a gap of $15-Million.
