Misplaced items are also held temporarily at the airport police substation in Terminal B and at National's four security checkpoints, but they are turned over to the lost-and-found office within 48 hours.

Spokesman Leaves

Tom Sullivan, a spokesman for more than six years for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which manages National and Dulles International airports, has left to become senior manager for corporate communications at Rolls-Royce North America in Chantilly.

Bill Would Rename BWI

Maryland Del. Emmett C. Burns Jr. (D-Baltimore County) has introduced a bill to rename Baltimore-Washington International Airport after former Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall, a Baltimore native.
