Longview — The Longview News Journal is reporting: Gregg County commissioners on Monday began a process to increase passenger fees at East Texas Regional Airport by $1.50 per person in 2013.
For almost 10 years, passengers using the airport have paid a $3 fee, with the money going to the local match required for Federal Aviation Authority grants. The FAA traditionally funds 95 percent of projects, such as a recently completed parking lot upgrade and a coming terminal renovation. The county pitches in 5 percent.
