The authority overseeing the D.C. area's two main airports approved new travel rules for its board of directors and staff and decided to halt no-bid contracts, as the emotions of the embattled board members simmered at a contentious Wednesday meeting.
Elected leaders from the District, Maryland and Virginia joined the nation's top transportation official on Tuesday calling for immediate reforms at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority in the wake of recent reports that raise "serious doubts" about its effectiveness.
Mr. Curto said in a joint statement Tuesday that the authority had made "significant progress" in addressing many of the concerns outlined in the letter.
Mr. Curto said he didn't know what behind-the-scenes action Ms. Hall was referring to, since six new board members have come aboard since November 2010.
