A bill making its way through the state legislature could add a new member to the board that governs the local airport. Assemblyman Wesley Chesbro recently introduced a bill that would designate the Smith River Rancheria as a public agency to join the Border Coast Regional Airport Authority. “This will build a stronger, cooperative relationship between tribal and non-tribal entities,” said the Democrat who represents the North Coast.
