Fly the Private Skies
This news from the KC Star is pretty awesome. Officials in Kansas City are talking about privatizing the airport, just as Chicago just did with Midway. This is just in the discussion stage, but Mayor Funkhouser actually proposed it years ago when he was auditor. Chicago was in a better position to do this than many other cities were, because Midway is sort of the area’s backup airport. There, Mayor Daley has led the way on privatization among American mayors, and it would be exciting to have KC follow suit. Expect to hear much more from the Show-Me Institute about this subject, as it moves forward.
