Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed the bill that strips three airport authority board members of their $171,648 annual salaries.
The bill was introduced by state Sen. Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, in the wake of the airport authority’s failed Miramar ballot initiative.
“Taxpayers expect public boards such as the airport authority to be accountable and this legislation delivers on that expectation,” Kehoe said in a news release. “I’m certain that a more accountable airport authority will benefit all San Diego residents.”
