Morrell Statement on Ontario Airport Agreement

Thursday, August 6, 2015

Senator Mike Morrell, R-Rancho Cucamonga, issued the following statement in response to the decision announced today to transfer control of Ontario International Airport from Los Angeles to the Ontario International Airport Authority:

“Today, I join leaders and communities from across our region in applauding the decision to restore local control of Ontario Airport. We have long believed that this transition is necessary for the economic vitality of the Inland Empire. Residents and businesses alike deserve close access to an airport that meets their needs and can compete with other hubs in Southern California. This agreement now empowers local officials to make decisions that focus on building up Ontario Airport and providing the best service to those who travel to and from our area. Thank you to all of those who united together in this effort.”
