BWI could be sold or go public, O'Malley says
FT.com, the web site of the Financial Times, is reporting that Gov. Martin O'Malley told a conference he's open to the sale of Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport -- or a public offering of stock in the facility.
To put this in context, this was not a gubernatorial announcement but a response to a question.
Sun Business Editor Laura Smitherman elaborates:
O’Malley was asked the question at the conference and responded that he would be open to it. But they arren’t proactively seeking bidders, and any deal would take more than a year to hammer out -- so it’s not a short-term budget fix. The governor has been open to privatizing other assets and apparently would consider an airport offer if the price is right.
