“I am disappointed that this new piece of legislation has been introduced today,” said Mayor Dan Clodfelter. “I think the airport and the community all are better served if we can first find a resolution of this dispute among interests here in Charlotte and then decide how to put that solution into legislation.  I would ask that the General Assembly stand down from this new legislative proposal while local discussions in Charlotte continue.”
The Mayor’s statement refers to legislation released on Monday night, June 9, regarding Charlotte’s airport. The legislation is being considered by the Senate Finance Committee today, Tuesday, June 10.
