Congressman Patrick Meehan (D-PA) recently questioned Federal Aviation Administrator Randy Babbitt regarding the Philadelphia International Airport Expansion Project. The questioning was part of a Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee on Aviation hearing. Part of the questioning related to whether the FAA intended to condemn properties outside of Philadelphia for the project.

Congressman stated in a press release: “I sought clarification on eminent domain powers in relation to the Philadelphia Airport expansion.” However, there was no such clarification given during the hearing as Congressman Meehan’s allotted time ran out.
