Follow sage advice on airport expansion [Letter]

In a recent announcement, Gov.-elect Larry Hogan appointed Anirban Basu , founder of the Sage Policy Group, to work on economic development. Hogan praised him as "the smartest guy in the state on economic policy." As some of you might recall, the Sage Policy Group assessed the economic impact of the proposed airport expansion (March 2007) and recommended pursuing the project. The report is available online. I'm wondering now if the project is still on the table with the federal government and, if so, will the changed board of commissioners follow the "sage" advice? Dan Bridgewater Westminster
