Partner David Bannard contributed an article to the American Bar Association’s Air & Space Lawyer, “Will Ground Access Woes and Federal Revenue Restrictions Choke U.S. Airports?” volume 29, number 2, 2016. The article discussed a pressing need for many U.S. airports to extend runways to accommodate increasing passenger demand, along with the equally pressing need to improve ground access. Bannard provided insights on how airports’ efforts to address ground access constraints have been hampered by federal legislation that limits the right of airports to use funds derived from airport operations, federal Airport Improvement Program grants and passenger facility charges for ground access projects.
