The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority agreed earlier today to oppose legislation that would revamp the board, as proposed by state Sen. Christine Kehoe.

But authority members largely avoided mentioning the legislation’s most obvious implication: Seven board members will be kicked out of their positions.

Instead, authority members said they were concerned the legislation would pass off responsibility for land-use planning near airport to the San Diego Association of Governments — without providing any way to fund the revision of plans every five years.

Their formal position was “oppose unless amended.”

The resolution they adopted, however, leaves open just what needs to be amended.

For more on this, read my story later today.

Background on Kehoe’s legislation is here.
