WASHINGTON (AP) - Records show that the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has given tens of thousands of dollars in pay raises to several top officials this year.


The airports board, which controls Ronald Reagan Washington National and Dulles International airports, has been criticized for its spending and hiring practices. An audit by the Department of Transportation's inspector general found employees accepting improper gifts and the issuance of no-bid contracts. Records also show that dozens of relatives of MWAA staff have been hired.


 At least five vice presidents received pay raises of up to nearly 14 percent this year. MWAA President Jack Potter says he recommended the pay increases in order to retain highly qualified employees and compensate them according to their responsibilities.
