    Report of the Airports' Acquisition and Development Study Commission

    Airports' Acquisition and Development Study Commission

    Enabling Authority
    SJR 12 (Regular Session, 1972)

    Executive Summary
    This is the second report made by the Commission originally created pursuant to Senate Joint Resolution No. 15 of 1971 and continued by Senate Joint Resolution No. 12 of 1972. Initially the Commission was created in response to the annual budget message to the Congress of the President of the United States. Included in the message was the proposal that the Dulles International and Washington National Airports be sold in order to promote economy in the operation of the federal government. At that time there existed no clearly defined guideline as to the basis on which ownership of these airports would be transferred; however, it was thought that a possibility of Virginia's coming into possession of these two tremendous transportation facilities might be realized.
