St. Louis Metropolitan Area Airport Authority - RG 523 | Illinois State Archives

Name: St. Louis Metropolitan Area Airport Authority - RG 523

Historical Note: The St. Louis Metropolitan Area Airport Authority was created by the General Assembly in 1970 to plan, acquire land for, construct, maintain, and operate one or more airports in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Illinois counties in the St. Louis area included Bond, Clinton, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair. The authority was composed of five public members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. No more than three of these members were to be affiliated with the same political party. The authority initially was provided necessary funding from regular state appropriations to conduct feasibility, engineering, and marketing studies. Once a site or sites had been selected it was to issue independent interest bearing bonds to finance its activities (P.A. 76-2563, pp. 1078-1092). The authority received its last appropriation from the General Assembly on July 17, 1980 (P.A. 81-1355, p. 755). Thereafter the U.S. Department of Transportation denied the authority final approval of its proposed plan and subsequently the authority ceased to exist.
