HB 1106, known as the Georgia Airport Development Authority Law, creates the Georgia Airport Development Authority, which is responsible for studying the location, funding, and development of any new airport within the State of Georgia which is planned to accommodate large aircraft. SB 173 prohibits any city, county, or municipality from condemning private property in a neighboring city, county, or municipality for a new airport or for an airport expansion without obtaining permission of the neighboring local government. The Act provides for appeal to the General Assembly for approval upon denial by the city, county, or municipality in which such proposed project is to be located.
