US Act on Airport Passenger Facility Charges Could Pave the Way to Faster Airport Modernization
The Blue Swan Daily cites CEI and other liberty-oriented organizations for their support of legislation removing the federal cap on airport passenger facility charges.
Meanwhile, Robert Poole, the director of transportation policy and founder of the Reason Foundation, a libertarian think tank, says: “The PFC is a local user fee that helps airports expand and modernise their terminals, enabling more airlines to offer services there. Increased competition leads to lower air fares, which is a major benefit of locally funded airport expansion.”
FreedomWorks, Citizens Against Government Waste, Competitive Enterprise Institute, and Taxpayers Protection Alliance have also demonstrated support for the legislation.
