Keisha Lance Bottoms on Government Reform

 

 


Opposes plan for state to take control of Atlanta airport

A plan for the state to take over control of Atlanta's airport introduced by Republican state Sen. Burt Jones, would create the Georgia Major Airport Authority. The airport is currently owned by the city. Bottoms has come out against the proposal, calling it "theft" from Atlanta.

The legislation would create the Georgia Major Airport Authority, a board appointed by state officials to oversee operations at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Sen. Jones said state control is needed because of corruption issues in the procurement process. Critics say those issues involved past administrations and that Bottoms has taken steps to reform the process.
