US Travel Association president and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement in support of the Investing in America: Rebuilding America’s Airport Infrastructure Act of 2017, introduced today:

“This bill is proof that the conversation around fixing our aviation infrastructure has fundamentally changed, with bipartisan, broad-spectrum support coalescing behind the approach of sensible user fees and local control over projects.


“There has long been overwhelming agreement that our nation’s airports must be updated in order to keep up with growing travel demand if America is to remain economically competitive. Meanwhile, consensus has been steadily building that the PFC is the perfect pay-for to achieve that goal. Adjusting the PFC cap will empower local airport authorities to invest in targeted infrastructure projects, improving security and the flying experience for travelers, and keeping us globally competitive.

“We thank Ranking Member DeFazio and Rep. Massie for elevating the PFC as the common-sense funding solution we need to accomplish this goal.”
