GARY, INDIANA – The Gary/Chicago International Airport Authority may consider fighting a proposed state Senate bill that would take away majority control from the City of Gary by creating five (5) authority appointments to the governor. Senate Bill 585 would expand the Gary Airport Authority Board from seven (7) to 11 members. The mayor of Gary would retain his right to appoint four (4) members, but the governor would get five (5) appointments. Lake and Porter County executive bodies would continue to appoint one (1) member each. Proponents of the bill look at the airport as a “regional” facility.
