The House of Representatives is readying its comprehensive $1.5 trillion dollar infrastructure package for floor consideration next week. The bill, H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act , incorporates the comprehensive surface transportation bill that was recently passed by the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and a number of additional provisions for other infrastructure. The bill includes a total of $37 billion in authorized funding for airports, which ACC detailed in a legislative update sent to members this week.

ACC has identified a total of more than $31 billion in rehabilitation and maintenance projects at 46 airports, based on responses to a survey ACC conducted earlier this year. This past February, ACC released an updated report providing an overview of more than 100 airports' upcoming capital development spending needs through the year 2024, equating to more than $138 billion in planned projects. The majority of identified projects focused on terminal redevelopment and expansion, climate change mitigation, infrastructure resiliency development, and more. In light of recent developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and the drastic reduction in travel, ACC further examined the survey results to determine what proportion of the $138 billion in funding could be attributed solely to planned renovation and rehabilitation of existing systems and infrastructure, as opposed to capacity expansion and development. ACC extrapolated this data as airports across the country temporarily pull back on planned capacity projects and possibly seek other areas of needed improvements at their facilities.

The ACC Board of Directors has revisited the Council’s strategic plan to prioritize the Future of Airports theme in the post-COVID world. ACC as a result, has proposed a process for ACC committees to take leadership and engage in educating and informing ACC members and industry stakeholders on the post-COVID airport, as passengers begin to return to airports. The Terminal and Facilities committee, under the leadership of Scott Tumolo (C&S Companies) and Amy Sonbuchner (Alliiance), have recently formed three subcommittees: Arrival, Departure and Post-Security, to take on this initiative and identify and prioritize topics for virtual panels discussions, and possible written summaries.
