Ontario International Airport to stay under control of LAWA

30-Jun-2011 10:15 AM

USOntario International Airport will remain under its present control for now as a state bill to create the framework for an airport authority has been frozen by its author (The Press-Enterprise, 28-Jun-2011). = Senator Bob Dutton's bill would have created an entity led by representatives from Ontario, San Bernardino County and Riverside County to manage the airport. These representatives blame current owner/operator Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) for the airport’s drop in passenger traffic and loss of carriers. Sen Dutton asked to hold the bill at the committee level because the City of Ontario has been in talks with the City of Los Angeles. The bill had passed the Senate and was awaiting an assembly vote.
