Sen. Mark Herring Statement Regarding MWAA PLA Vote


Leesburg – State Senator Mark Herring (D-Loudoun & Fairfax) released the following statement regarding the MWAA Board’s vote this morning to remove the PLA incentive for Phase 2 of the Dulles Rail Project:


“The MWAA Board’s decision removes the major stated obstacle for members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to commit to the project.  It is time for the Board to vote to opt-in to Phase 2 and bring Metro to Loudoun.  The decision also frees up the already promised $150 million contribution from the Commonwealth to the project.  I call on Governor McDonnell to see that these state funds are released in a timely fashion and without further condition.  I will continue my effort to secure additional state funding for Phase 2 in order to bring down projected toll increases and lessen the burden on the Toll Road users.”
