Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport will continue collecting a $3 passenger facility charge for the next 11 years, but this time the funds will be used for a different purpose, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday. The airport had been collecting a $3 passenger charge since 1994, but the revenues were designated for acquiring land for a new terminal. Through the FAA's approval of a new PFC application, the airport can now collect up to $73.7 million, and more than $66 million will go toward the acoustical treatment of Burbank and Sun Valley homes and schools, airport officials said.

I don't know why it seems that liberal Democrats like state Sen. Adam Schiff always go to big government agencies to solve problems that are best handled at the local level.

Probably thinking as most liberals do, that government knows what is best for the people.
