Airport Bond Question Could Be on April Ballot

St. Louis, MO – St. Louis city voters may be asked in the next election to approve bonds for construction at Lambert Airport.

It's up to the city's Board of Aldermen to put the question on the April ballot. The question would ask voters permission to sell up to $2 billion in bonds. The money could help pay for construction on a new terminal.

City taxpayers would not be liable for borrowing because revenue generated at the airport would pay off the bonds. Voters approved a similar bond authority 11 years ago.
