Hartsfield-Jackson in the news

Georgia House Bill 644, which proposed shifting control of Hartsfield-Jackson from the City of Atlanta to the state, rallied support for the Airport from both sides of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's editorial spectrum.

Jay Bookman, the newspaper's left-leaning columnist, pointed to the Airport's reputation as being efficient and well-run as he decried the notion that the state could do a better job of running it.

Jim Wooten, the AJC's right-leaning columnist, also took a stand in favor of the Airport and its current management. In the column titled "Does Atlanta airport need fixing?," Wooten expresses the opinion that the state "rarely has greater expertise in running any of those functions normally carried out by local governments and authorities."
