Contact Congress to Oppose HR 1691

The providers of ground transportation services, including limousine companies, are behind the introduction of legislation which would prohibit airports from charging fees for the use of the airport facility by ground transportation providers.  H.R. 1691, the Prevention of Unreasonable Fees Act, was introduced by Congresswoman Laura Richardson (D-Calif.) and is co-sponsored by Congressman Allen West (R-Fla.)

Limo and taxi drivers want to use airport infrastructure and contribute to the wear and tear of it without having to appropriately pay for such usage.  Additionally, there have been a number of court cases involving ground transportation providers suing airports regarding the right to collect access fees.  To date, airports have prevailed and the right to charge these fees has been upheld.

ACI-NA asks that you send the attached draft letter to your House delegation asking that they oppose H.R. 1691.
