Meng Introduces Legislation Requiring EPA to Take Over Efforts to Combat Airplane Noise Over Queens

With the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) doing virtually nothing to mitigate the barrage of increased airplane noise over Queens, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) introduced legislation that would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take the lead in combatting aircraft noise over the borough, as well as in affected communities across the country.

The Congresswoman’s bill is cosponsored by Reps. Joe Crowley (D-Queens/Bronx), Steve Israel (D-Queens/L.I.), Kathleen Rice (D-L.I.), Nita Lowey (D-Westchester), Katherine Clark (D-MA), Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and Mike Quigley (D-IL).
