Letter to Senator LeMieux Regarding Allegations Concerning Venice Municipal Airport in Florida
On July 16, 2010, we issued our response to Senator George LeMieux regarding a constituent's allegations about the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) oversight of the Venice Municipal Airport in Florida. The constituent’s six allegations specifically focused on FAA’s Orlando Airport District Office’s (ADO) compliance with Agency policies in making decisions on airport operations and raised concern about Venice Airport revenue use. We did not substantiate the constituent’s allegations that the Orlando ADO did not comply with FAA policies. However, we found sufficient support to initiate a more detailed review of Venice Airport's revenue use. We announced this audit on June 2, 2010.
