In May 1970, President Nixon signed the Public Law 91-258, The Airport and Airway Development Act of 1970. The Act authorizes a $5.4 billion federal expenditure for improvements to the National Aviation System during the decade of the Seventies. The Airport Development Aid Program (ADAP) portion of the Act projects a $2.5 billion expenditure to match state and local funds for the improvement of existing airport facilities and to construct new airports. This paper describes the government's participation through the Federal Aviation Administration in airport construction.
