    You know the term "Corrupt Politician" is
    redundant?

    The airports are entirely in Virginia
    Why should DC or Maryland have any say?

    Actually
    Actually, I think BWI is included, so that would give Maryland a say. If I'm wrong, than you're right ... what business is is of MD and DC.

    BWI
    Not a part of the MWAA.

    That was tried when the authority was being organized, but summarily rejected. That was a big win for Maryland!

    Virginians are stuck with a group that can barely manage the two airports it oversees, and clearly has no business overseeing a rail project

    BWI
    is not under MWAA. If Norton wants a say then DC needs to pony up some $$$$.

    There Ain't No Airports in DC
    Sorry, Eleanor but DC doesn't count in this matter. Please go back to pushing DC statehood...that's gotta be a full-time job.

    Same old thing.!!!!!!
    Everything DC has a hand in corruption seems to follow.
    They don't have an air port so they need to but out and try to get their corruption stopped.

    Take our Road Back from this Corrupt Board
    MWAA is a total embarrassment. One USDOT IG investigation complete, another (Dulles Rail-specific) in progress, and an FBI investigation in-progress too...

    Yet they continue to raise tolls on DTR commuters for a project few of us will use.

    Virginia must take our toll road back from MWAA and put an end to this corruption and abuse.

    Sign the petition at www.noTOLLincrease.org. There are better ways to solve our transportation problems!
