Airport Zoning Board airs legislation, complaints, encroachment threats
By Bill Sontag Del Rio Live! (TX) December 16, 2008With introductions of two new members, Monday (Dec. 15), the City of Del Rio-Val Verde County Joint Airport Zoning (JAZ) Board quenched a months-long drought, lacking a quorum to conduct business....
Weathersbee got right down to business, querying Val Verde County Precinct 3 Commissioner Beau Nettleton about a draft bill meandering through the Texas legislature, aimed at affording more protection to the mission of Laughlin Air Force Base. Nettleton explained that expansions of the scope of the proposed bill have been drafted to reflect new information and the advice of legislative counsel in Austin, but the specific zone of protection from encroachment remains at five nautical miles from the centerline of Laughlin's main runway.
Nettleton further explained that when the bill - entitled "An act relating to granting certain local governments general zoning authority around certain military facilities; providing a penalty" - begins the legislative process, it will first appear for consideration by the House Defense Affairs and State-Federal Relations Committee, chaired by Rep. Frank Corte Jr. (R-San Antonio). The bill's next review will be in the Senate's Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee, chaired by Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio).
