The Miramar ballot language is official. The county’s registrar of voters received it Friday.

Though several business leaders made a last-minute push to change the language, that didn’t happen. So the question remains what was approved June 5.

To provide for San Diego’s long-term air transportation needs, shall the Airport Authority and government officials work to obtain approximately 3,000 of 23,000 acres at MCAS Miramar by 2020 for a commercial airport, provided necessary traffic and freeway improvements are made, military readiness is maintained without expense to the military for modifying or relocating operations, no local taxes are used on the airport, overall noise impacts are reduced, and necessary Lindbergh Field improvements are completed?

Shameless self-promotion: I chatted with KPBS’s Tom Fudge about the airport on These Days this morning (this was before the math rapper). The podcast link is here.

In other airport news, Assemblyman George Plescia, a Miramar airport opponent, is holding a town hall meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. at Scripps Ranch High School. Scheduled to appear: Plescia; an airport authority representative; Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Michael Lehnert; and Richard Carson, a University of California, San Diego, economics professor who has questioned the authority’s economic analyses.
