Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority members had a message Wednesday for officials from Virginia, Fairfax and Loudoun counties and the federal government regarding the second phase of the Dulles Metrorail project: The ball's in your court.
Fairfax County on Tuesday conditionally endorsed Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood's plan to cut roughly $1 billion in costs from the second leg of the Dulles Metrorail project.
John E. Potter was named to head the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on Wednesday, six months after finishing a decade-long stint overseeing the financially beleaguered U.S. Postal Service.
"Combined with the extra four directors, the net effect would be to transfer absolute control of the airports to Richmond," Mr. Snelling said. "We have great concerns since the airports themselves are federally owned and regional assets that serve passengers from throughout the metropolitan area."
About 45 minutes after the Capitol Hill event, Charles Snelling, chairman of the embattled Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, urged the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments board to oppose legislation that would add directors to the airports authority board and give Virginia a majority of seats.
