TEB controversy cools-for now

The controversy over Teterboro Airport (TEB) operations seems to be cooling down. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns and operates the airport, has been calling for a 10-percent reduction in operations, and Rep. Steve Rothman (D-N.J.) has been demanding a 25-percent reduction. A working committee, composed of operators on the field and Port Authority officials, met late last month to develop recommendations to alleviate community concerns. The recommendations will not be announced officially until later this month.
