IAH and HOU with U.S. Customs? United running a HUGE campaign to keep IAH the sole INT'L US Customs airport in the city of Houston, Tx. They took out a full page ad in the Houston Chronicle, spitting out flyers like crazy, and created a petition web page here Keep IAH Strong
. I'm on the fence with this one but leaning more to the opposed side of it. It only makes sense to keep IAH, with all the money the city and United has spent on the facilities. BUT, then again the knuckleheads (City of Houston) needs to come up with 5 million to break the red light camera contract. But, they can spend millions on a soccer stadium.
Is the city so disgusted with United leaving that they really have to bring this subject up to a vote? As far as I know, There is no CITY that has 2 US Customs facilities in the U.S. It goes up to vote May 9th in front of Houston City Counsel. Thoughts, comments or opinions welcomed
