County supervisors stepped back from studying closure, and instead voted to study the legal issues surrounding any attempt to close Reid-Hillview. Originally, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors considered a resolution to study closing the airport.

The board voted 4-0 in favor of the amended resolution during a March 18 meeting. Read more on AOPA Online.
