For the fourth year in a row, a bill that would place authority over the state’s airports in the hands of an independent corporation has failed to pass.

Senate Bill 666 would have established an airports corporation that would adopt all authority over the state’s seven commercial airports, taking over from the state’s Department of Transportation.  The airports corporation would streamline the decision-making process for the state’s airports by centralizing responsibility for the airports into a single body.
