O'Hare Expansion - Cox said he would support providing drivers access to O'Hare from the west and reconfiguring the airport's runways for safety, but would oppose any new runways for increased flights.

O'Hare Expansion - "Nowhere is the politics of corruption and cronyism more present than in the debate over the expansion of O'Hare Airport," Cox said. "The combine that is either in league with or afraid of the political power of the Mayor of Chicago has bought into the massive deception and misdirection of resources that is represented by that project."

Rockford Airport - He argues the answer to the state's transportation problems lies in high-speed rail and expanding Rockford's airport. But the centerpiece of his campaign is a third airport in the south suburbs, which he contends would foster prosperity on the South Side and in the south suburbs.
