(AP) A federal agency says it will stay out of the legal fight between Charlotte and North Carolina lawmakers for control of the nation's sixth busiest airport until the issue is resolved in court.


Charlotte Mayor Patsy Kinsey praised the Federal Aviation Administration's position.


A North Carolina judge in August blocked the state from stripping control of the airport from the city until the FAA weighed in on the issue


The city says the Republican-led N.C. General Assembly's move to turn over day-to-day operations of the airport to a 13-member airport commission runs afoul of the state constitution.


One of the key issues is whether an FAA-issued operating certificate could be transferred from the city to the commission. The city said no, while attorneys for the commission said it could be.
