AGC Weighs-In Supporting Increased Airport Infrastructure Funding

On March 26, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee held a hearing focused on the chronic underinvestment in our nation’s airports and potential solutions. Prior to the hearing AGC urged support for increasing airport infrastructure, including increasing the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC).  The PFC is a local airport user fee used for airport facility expansion and renovation that has a federally mandated cap on how high an airport can set the fee. Raising or eliminating the cap on the PFC will allow local airports to meet there short and long-term infrastructure needs. AGC is a proud member of the Beyond the Runway Coalition and will continue to work with our partners for increased airport infrastructure funding.
