Re: The Modernization of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
Dear Council President and Councilmembers:
As members of the Los Angeles Coalition for the Economy & Jobs (L.A. Coalition), we are writing to express our strong support for the recently approved Board of Airport Commissioners’ (BOAC) recommendations that woulmake Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) a safer, more operationally efficient and passenger‐friendly airport.
LAX is the second largt job generator within the region and a signicant component in the tourism and business economy of Los Angeles and Southn California. After 20 years of debate, six safety studies and 49 straight months of a 10 percent and higher unemployment rate in the city, it’s time to act and make LAX a first rate airport once again.
