GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Federal officials say they won’t prosecute the Grand Junction Regional Airport Authority after the board signed an agreement to cooperate with the U.S. Department of Justice in an ongoing investigation.

The U.S. Department of Justice says a new board made several changes, including accounting and oversight, new personnel and a hotline for whistleblowers. The agreement covers only the authority and not any employees or board members.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (http://tinyurl.com/prbsxcr ), board member Rick Wagner says the agreement will allow the board to get on with its work. The newspaper says the agreement comes in the wake of an FBI raid in November in which agents seized airport records in a fraud investigation.
