Sec. 49101. Findings

-STATUTE-

Congress finds that -

(1) the 2 federally owned airports in the metropolitan area of

the District of Columbia constitute an important and growing part

of the commerce, transportation, and economic patterns of

Virginia, the District of Columbia, and the surrounding region;

(2) Baltimore/Washington International Airport, owned and

operated by Maryland, is an air transportation facility that

provides service to the greater Metropolitan Washington region

together with the 2 federally owned airports, and timely

Federal-aid grants to Baltimore/Washington International Airport

will provide additional capacity to meet the growing air traffic

needs and to compete with other airports on a fair basis;

(3) the United States Government has a continuing but limited

interest in the operation of the 2 federally owned airports,

which serve the travel and cargo needs of the entire Metropolitan

Washington region as well as the District of Columbia as the

national seat of government;

(4) operation of the Metropolitan Washington Airports by an

independent local authority will facilitate timely improvements

at both airports to meet the growing demand of interstate air

transportation occasioned by the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978

(Public Law 95-504; 92 Stat. 1705);

(5) all other major air carrier airports in the United States

are operated by public entities at the State, regional, or local

level;

(6) any change in status of the 2 airports must take into

account the interest of nearby communities, the traveling public,

air carriers, general aviation, airport employees, and other

interested groups, as well as the interests of the United States

Government and State governments involved;

(7) in recognition of a perceived limited need for a Federal

role in the management of these airports and the growing local

interest, the Secretary of Transportation has recommended a

transfer of authority from the Federal to the local/State level

that is consistent with the management of major airports

elsewhere in the United States;

(8) an operating authority with representation from local

jurisdictions, similar to authorities at all major airports in

the United States, will improve communications with local

officials and concerned residents regarding noise at the

Metropolitan Washington Airports;

(9) a commission of congressional, State, and local officials

and aviation representatives has recommended to the Secretary

that transfer of the federally owned airports be as a unit to an

independent authority to be created by Virginia and the District

of Columbia; and

(10) the Federal interest in these airports can be provided

through a lease mechanism which provides for local control and

operation.

Sec. 49104. Lease of Metropolitan Washington Airports

-STATUTE-

(a) General. - The lease between the Secretary of Transportation

and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority under section

6005(a) of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Act of 1986 (Public

Law 99-500; 100 Stat. 1783-375; Public Law 99-591; 100 Stat.

3341-378), for the Metropolitan Washington Airports must provide

during its 50-year term at least the following:

(1) The Airports Authority shall operate, maintain, protect,

promote, and develop the Metropolitan Washington Airports as a

unit and as primary airports serving the Metropolitan Washington

area.

(2)(A) In this paragraph, "airport purposes" means a use of

property interests (except a sale) for -

(i) aviation business or activities;

(ii) activities necessary or appropriate to serve passengers

or cargo in air commerce; or

(iii) nonprofit, public use facilities that are not

inconsistent with the needs of aviation.

(B) During the period of the lease, the real property

constituting the Metropolitan Washington Airports shall be used

only for airport purposes.

(C) If the Secretary decides that any part of the real property

leased to the Airports Authority under this chapter is used for

other than airport purposes, the Secretary shall -

(i) direct that the Airports Authority take appropriate

measures to have that part of the property be used for airport

purposes; and

(ii) retake possession of the property if the Airports

Authority fails to have that part of the property be used for

airport purposes within a reasonable period of time, as the

Secretary decides.

(3) The Airports Authority is subject to section 47107(a)-(c)

and (e) of this title and to the assurances and conditions

required of grant recipients under the Airport and Airway

Improvement Act of 1982 (Public Law 97-248; 96 Stat. 671) as in

effect on June 7, 1987. Notwithstanding section 47107(b) of this

title, all revenues generated by the Metropolitan Washington

Airports shall be expended for the capital and operating costs of

the Metropolitan Washington Airports.

(4) In acquiring by contract supplies or services for an amount

estimated to be more than $200,000, or awarding concession

contracts, the Airports Authority to the maximum extent

practicable shall obtain complete and open competition through

the use of published competitive procedures. By a vote of 7

members, the Airports Authority may grant exceptions to the

requirements of this paragraph.

(5)(A) Except as provided in subparagraph (B) of this

paragraph, all regulations of the Metropolitan Washington

Airports (14 CFR part 159) become regulations of the Airports

Authority as of June 7, 1987, and remain in effect until modified

or revoked by the Airports Authority under procedures of the

Airports Authority.

(B) Sections 159.59(a) and 159.191 of title 14, Code of Federal

Regulations, do not become regulations of the Airports Authority.

(C) The Airports Authority may not increase or decrease the

number of instrument flight rule takeoffs and landings authorized

by the High Density Rule (14 CFR 93.121 et seq.) at Ronald Reagan

Washington National Airport on October 18, 1986, and may not

impose a limitation on the number of passengers taking off or

landing at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

(D) Subparagraph (C) does not apply to any increase in the

number of instrument flight rule takeoffs and landings necessary

to implement exemptions granted by the Secretary under section

41718.

(6)(A) Except as specified in subparagraph (B) of this

paragraph, the Airports Authority shall assume all rights,

liabilities, and obligations of the Metropolitan Washington

Airports on June 7, 1987, including leases, permits, licenses,

contracts, agreements, claims, tariffs, accounts receivable,

accounts payable, and litigation related to those rights and

obligations, regardless whether judgment has been entered,

damages awarded, or appeal taken. The Airports Authority must

cooperate in allowing representatives of the Attorney General and

the Secretary adequate access to employees and records when

needed for the performance of duties and powers related to the

period before June 7, 1987. The Airports Authority shall assume

responsibility for the Federal Aviation Administration's Master

Plans for the Metropolitan Washington Airports.

(B) The procedure for disputes resolution contained in any

contract entered into on behalf of the United States Government

before June 7, 1987, continues to govern the performance of the

contract unless otherwise agreed to by the parties to the

contract. Claims for monetary damages founded in tort, by or

against the Government as the owner and operator of the

Metropolitan Washington Airports, arising before June 7, 1987,

shall be adjudicated as if the lease had not been entered into.

(C) The Administration is responsible for reimbursing the

Employees' Compensation Fund, as provided in section 8147 of

title 5, for compensation paid or payable after June 7, 1987, in

accordance with chapter 81 of title 5 for any injury, disability,

or death due to events arising before June 7, 1987, whether or

not a claim was filed or was final on that date.

bargaining rights enjoyed by employees of the Metropolitan

Washington Airports before June 7, 1987.

(7) The Comptroller General may conduct periodic audits of the

activities and transactions of the Airports Authority in

accordance with generally accepted management principles, and

under regulations the Comptroller General may prescribe. An audit

shall be conducted where the Comptroller General considers it

appropriate. All records and property of the Airports Authority

shall remain in possession and custody of the Airports Authority.

(8) The Airports Authority shall develop a code of ethics and

financial disclosure to ensure the integrity of all decisions

made by its board of directors and employees. The code shall

include standards by which members of the board will decide, for

purposes of section 49106(d) of this title, what constitutes a

substantial financial interest and the circumstances under which

an exception to the conflict of interest prohibition may be

granted.

(9) A landing fee imposed for operating an aircraft or revenues

derived from parking automobiles -

(A) at Washington Dulles International Airport may not be

used for maintenance or operating expenses (excluding debt

service, depreciation, and amortization) at Ronald Reagan

Washington National Airport; and

used for maintenance or operating expenses (excluding debt

service, depreciation, and amortization) at Washington Dulles

International Airport.

(10) The Airports Authority shall compute the fees and charges

for landing general aviation aircraft at the Metropolitan

Washington Airports on the same basis as the landing fees for air

carrier aircraft, except that the Airports Authority may require

a minimum landing fee that is not more than the landing fee for

aircraft weighing 12,500 pounds.

(11) The Secretary shall include other terms applicable to the

parties to the lease that are consistent with, and carry out,

this chapter.

(b) Payments. - Under the lease, the Airports Authority must pay

to the general fund of the Treasury annually an amount, computed

The Secretary and the Airports Authority may renegotiate the level

of lease payments attributable to inflation costs every 10 years.

(c) Enforcement of Lease Provisions. - The district courts of the

United States have jurisdiction to compel the Airports Authority

and its officers and employees to comply with the terms of the

lease. The Attorney General or an aggrieved party may bring an

action on behalf of the Government.

(d) Extension of Lease. - The Secretary and the Airports

Authority may at any time negotiate an extension of the lease.

Washington Airports, and the Secretary of Transportation is
