Two top officials who have taken the lead in cleaning up ethical lapses and mismanagement at the board overseeing the Washington region's two major airports came under fire for their own actions Friday at a House oversight hearing.
Though some had hoped for action on Wednesday, the regional authority overseeing the $6 billion rail-to-Dulles project will not discuss - or possibly vote on - a labor provision that is threatening to derail the second leg of the 23-mile rail line until as late as June 6.
MWAA Chairman Michael Curto said at a press conference that the organization is taking the IG's report very seriously.
"We are committed to strong oversight and internal controls and to making certain that everything we do going forward reflects the best practices of government and industry," he said.
