AOPA mainly. The "Meigs Legacy" ammendment was attached to the last FAA
Reauthorization bill. It increased the notice from 30 days to 90 and increased the
fine from $1,100 a day to $10,000 a day.

been looking for it.

If he used the grant money to tear up the runway, maybe they can get him on a
federal fraud charge.

The change in fines for future violations is the only consolation from
this fiasco. Putting Daley in jail would be an excellent outcome though.


On what charge?

No, I mean the Democratic Party in Chicago & Cook county, which is run by Daley. It's one of, if not the,
last true, ward-heeling, buy anything, vote early vote often, who cares if they're dead-register them,
don't screw with the Boss political machine in the U.S. The national committees are tea and crumpets
compared to Chicago.

That's certaily the "how". The "why" is political pressure from the biggest political
machine left in the country.

Which do you mean, the DNC or the RNC?

I'm sure they could find something if they look closely.

Didn't he violate the law that required 30 days notice?

The punishment for which is a meager fine not jail time.
