Midway Privatizes Airport.

Ok, not yet. But on October 8th Midway will be voting on a deal to be the first privatized airport in the United States. What does this mean for Chicago? Well, it will funnel more tax dollars into the city and state. It will increase traffic through Midway and thus lighten the load on one of the world's busiest airports (O'Hare). It will be the first test of how airports work privatized. Overall, I say it's a good thing.

If the deal goes through, it will be a 25-year contract.
