The D.C. Council is considering changes recommended by Congress to the board that oversees the airports serving Washington.
The proposed changes would give D.C. another seat on the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority board and give Virginia two new members.
The D.C. Council holds a hearing on the bill today; it will also consider Mayor Vincent Gray's nomination of Barbara Lang to the airports board. Lang is president of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce.
The board, which oversees Reagan National and Dulles International airports, was heavily criticized by federal, state and local officials after a fed audit detailed lavish spending by its members and contracts that were awarded without competition.
