Congressmen Mica and Rahall Letter to House Appropriations on AIP Local Match

Today, House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman John Mica (R-FL) and Ranking Member Nick Rahall (D-WV) sent a letter to House Transportation, Housing and Urban Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Tom Latham (R-IA) and Ranking Member John Olver (D-MA) asking that the Subcommittee extend the 95% federal share for small airports that had phased projects already underway when the FAA bill was enacted on February 14th, and applying it retroactively to cover FY 2012 funds that certain small airports received.  A copy of the letter is attached.

Last month, the Senate included a similar provision in the FY 2013 Transportation, Housing and Urban Affairs Appropriations bill, which was approved by the full Appropriations Committee.  ACI-NA has voiced its support for this change.
