Venable to revamp ethics policy for Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority

1 min

In a September 4, 2012 article, the Washington Post noted that the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) hired Venable to help revamp the authority’s ethics policy. According to the article, the revised ethics policy is “likely to place limits on the hiring of former board members as consultants and will require board members to be proactive about disclosing potential conflicts of interest.” The term of Venable’s services has not yet been determined.

Established in 1987 as an independent airport authority, the MWAA is charged with overseeing the management, operations, and development of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. The MWAA is also overseeing the $5.6 billion Dulles Rail project more commonly known as the Silver Line Metrorail extension.
