Do you find 13,000 acres of prime real estate in the Washington, D.C., area, complete with a Burberry shop and Starbucks cafes, appealing?
Such a for-sale advertisement for two of Washington, D.C.'s main area airports may pop up soon. The Trump administration on Monday said it is considering selling Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan International Airport along with other federally owned infrastructure.
"Federal ownership of these assets can result in sub-optimal investment decisions and create risk for taxpayers," said the Trump administration's infrastructure proposal. "To utilize this authority, an agency would delineate how proceeds would be spent and identify appropriate conditions under which sales would be made."
The airports are among pieces of infrastructure "that would be more appropriately owned by State, local, or private entities," the administration said.
