order to promote development of a new commercial airport in the suburban
region south of Chicago, Illinois, several Illinois municipal corporations
banded together to create a Joint Airport Commission, as authorized in
the Illinois Constitution (620 ILCS 20/2). The organization established
through their actions is known as the Abraham Lincoln National Airport
In addition, 20 municipalities or member communities have joined the Commission by adopting an intergovernmental agreement.
