Eshoo Joins Quiet Skies Caucus to Combat Aircraft Noise

October 3rd, 2014

PALO ALTO, Calif.—Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) announced today her membership in the Congressional Quiet Skies Caucus. As a founding member of the recently created caucus, Eshoo will raise awareness on the issue of aircraft noise and work to find meaningful solutions to the problem. The caucus consists of Members of Congress from across the country whose constituents are adversely affected by incidents of airplane and helicopter noise.

“Airports are epicenters of economic growth, but the noise from aircraft can make them pesky neighbors for many residents who live near them, including many of my constituents,” Eshoo said. “The creation of the Quiet Skies Caucus provides a forum to advance solutions that abate aircraft noise in our communities. I look forward to working with members of the caucus to address the concerns of residents who are impacted by aircraft noise.”

In September, Eshoo and 25 other Members of Congress indicated their disappointment with the Federal Aviation Administration’s handling of aircraft noise and failure to update a decades-old noise limit. A copy of the letter can be found here.
