The article reports that Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley's 6.6 billion dollar partially bond-financed runway expansion at O'Hare International Airport advanced when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a draft study that found no environmental reasons to block the project as of January 2005. The FAA formally released a draft of its statement on the project's environmental impact on Thursday, one month earlier than previously expected, and will take public comments on it at a series of hearings next month. The FAA is scheduled to release its final statement in July with a final record of decision on the project expected in September.
