The Budget proposes to replace the current “per enplanement” fee structure with a “per one-way trip” fee structure so that passengers pay the fee only one time when traveling to their destination. It also removes the current statutory fee limit and replaces it with a statutory fee minimum of $5.00 in 2014, with annual incremental increases of 50 cents from 2015 to 2019, resulting in a fee of $7.50 in 2019 and thereafter. The proposed fee would increase collections by an estimated $25.9 billion over 10 years. Of this amount, $7.9 billion will be applied to increase offsets to the discretionary costs of aviation security and the remaining $18 billion will be treated as mandatory savings and deposited in the general fund for deficit reduction. Of the $25.9 billion only $7.9 billion will go to airport security. The rest will go to deficit reduction?
