    OC Cong. Chris Cox -- South of OC Cong. Rohrabacher -- Reacts To L.A. Proposal To Operate Comm'l Airport @ El Toro; We Post Statement Verbatim

    (June 7, 2003) -- Responding to actions by the City of Los Angeles seeking federal intervention to operate El Toro as a commercial airport, OC Congressman Christopher Cox (who represents areas generally Newport Beach and southward of OC Congressman Dana Rohrabacher) has released the following statement:

    According to the Office of Government Affairs at the Department of Transportation, the April 9th proposal is not under consideration by the Department. The DOT returned the memo to its authors ‘some time ago’ and did not retain a copy.

    According to the Department of the Navy, it has not considered use of the base property for an airport since its March 2002 announcement following the passage of Measure W that the Navy will not convey El Toro for aviation purposes. The Navy is continuing to work closely with the City of Irvine to auction the El Toro property. Information concerning the auction process can be obtained at

    After speaking with officials at the Department of Transportation and the Navy, it is clear that the federal government is committed to creation of the second largest municipal park in the nation. Today the Department of Transportation and the Department of the Navy stated definitively that the federal government is not considering using the El Toro property as a commercial airport.
