   President Donald Trump’s proposed budget reduces funding for many domestic programs including a service that funds operations at Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah. The 2018 budget calls for the elimination of the Essential Air Service. The program contracts certificated air carriers to serve small communities. Airport manager Richard Roof said the cut would “delete a substantial amount of funding” for airline services including commercial flights to the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
