    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds that, in order to create, retain, and stabilize reliable air service to commercial service airports outside of Cook County, improve accessibility to business and industrial centers, augment the State's tourism industry, and encourage the development of facilities and support initiatives for community growth, cooperation between the State, airports, and communities is essential. The General Assembly further finds that a State grant program is the best method to achieve these ends.
