Reason Foundation Releases Infrastructure Report- Highlights Need for PFC Increase

 

Over the last few years, ACI-NA has worked with Bob Poole of the Reason Foundation in engaging and educating “conservatives” about the PFC, its importance in funding airport infrastructure and its diminished purchasing power since the last increase in 2000.  Yesterday, The Reason Foundation released a new report entitled, Funding Transportation Infrastructure in a Fiscally Constrained Environment.  ACI-NA provided a significant amount of the background data for the airport infrastructure section of the report.  The report emphasizes ACI-NA’s capital needs study data and our talking points on increasing the PFC.  Furthermore, the report urges the elimination of the Alternative Minimum Tax penalty on private activity bonds, another issue ACI-NA has discussed at length with Poole.
