Westchester County’s Airport Plan Hits Turbulence

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino’s plan to make the county millions of dollars by Privatizing the airport has hit some turbulence.

Mr. Astorino’s efforts have run into opposition from some residents who say the plan gives a new operator an incentive to maximize profits, which could lead to more planes flying in and out of the airport, as well as a cutback on environmental protections for the surrounding area.
