This blog commented on this on February 20th, check the archives. Good to see that the City Manager has decided not to pursue it at this time, note the article in today's paper, since tax levy monies would have to be used if not enough net "new" tax were created in the "DCU Special District Finance Zone" potentially adding to the existing deficit.

Fare hikes reported at 3 regional airports
April 29, 2007

Continued service cutbacks by legacy airlines, and more aggressive pricing by discounter Southwest Airlines Co., have continued to push average airfares higher at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn.; T.F. Green Airport outside Providence; and Manchester Boston Regional Airport in New Hampshire. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reported last week that those three airports ranked second, third, and fifth among the 85 biggest US airports for fare increases in the fourth quarter of last year -- the newest data -- compared to a year earlier, with fares up 9.2 percent at Manchester, 10.6 percent at Providence, and 12.6 percent at Bradley. Thanks to Southwest, though, airfares at all three remain well below US averages.
