Midway Airport Privatization Plans Grounded for Now

October 14, 2010 - Chicago Tribune - Mayor Richard Daley said Wednesday that he will not push forward with a second attempt to privatize Midway Airport during the remainder this term, which ends in May. "We're not going to move on it," Daley told the Chicago Tribune's editorial board during a discussion of his proposed 2011 budget. "It will be up to the (next) mayor to make that decision."

Daley has pursued the idea as a way to bring a revenue windfall into city coffers, as happened with the outsourcing of parking meters and the long-term lease of the Chicago Skyway. But a proposed deal to lease Midway for 99 years for $2.5 billion fell through last year when the investors could not secure financing.  Read full Midway Airport article.
