Washington, D.C. – (October 2, 2014) Advancing a long-time goal of N.O.I.S.E. Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY) has been working toward forming the first ever Quiet Skies Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives to focus on the issue of excessive aviation noise and its impacts on airport-adjacent communities. This Caucus will closely examine the impact of airport noise on communities and facilitate lasting changes in public policy surrounding airport noise issues. N.O.I.S.E. staff has been working with Congressional staff to help establish this caucus and recruit Members to join. We will share updates as they become available. If you would like your Member of Congress to join the Quiet Skies Caucus, please contact Emily Tranter, N.O.I.S.E. National Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
