As Maryland's most vital economic development stimulater, Baltimore-Washington International Airport's health and welfare should be of paramount concern to state leaders. That's why emerging plans to separate the airport from the stranglehold of state government are so important.Next year's General Assembly will almost certainly be asked to approve a new airport authority freed of bureaucratic constraints. The idea is to run BWI more like a for-profit private enterprise. Equally important, a separate airport authority could pursue an ambitious $400 million, six-year improvement program on an accelerated schedule by floating its own bonds, backed by airport revenues.
