Schulz highlights the economic impact of U.S. airports during an industry panel on the FAA reauthorization
ACC
ACC President T.J. Schulz participated in an industry panel on Thursday that was hosted by ACI-NA, as part of a number of activities taking place in Washington, D.C., to celebrate Infrastructure Week. Moderated by ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin Burke, the panel featured Pete Ruane, President & CEO of the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, and Lawson Bader, President of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Schulz discussed the importance of airport investment to help drive competition at airports and sustain their role as economic engines to local communities. He expressed concern about the FAA reauthorization process underway in Congress and the potential for delay and short term extensions, which will severely compromise the recent uptick in planning and projects that are improving the safety and performance of our nations’ airports and are creating numerous jobs. He noted that modernizing the PFC by raising the cap from its current level of $4.50 to $8.50 will allow local communities to invest in projects that will meet their unique needs and will help foster airline competition at airports.
