AIRPORT IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM: STATE BLOCK GRANT PILOT PROGRAM IS A SUCCESS. TESTIMONY

This is the statement of Gerald L. Dillingham, Associate Director, Transportation and Telecommunications Issues, Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division, General Accounting Office (GAO), before the Subcommittee on Aviation, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, House of Representatives, on the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) Airport Improvement Program's (AIP's) state block grant pilot program. The testimony focuses on five areas of the state block grant pilot program: (1) the extent to which the seven participating states are providing at least the same level of service to small airports as FAA previously provided; (2) the factors that have enhanced the states' ability to perform effectively; (3) the benefits that have accrued from the states' participation; (4) the problems that have arisen during the pilot program; and (5) the level of interest that other states have shown in participating in the program.
