Mr. Bagger Urges Congress Approval of 'Quiet' Act
Assemblyman Richard H. Bagger, a Republican from Westfield, with the commemoration of International Noise Awareness Day on April 29, has urged Congress to approve the "Quiet Communities Act of 1997."
This federal legislation directs the Environmental Protection Agency to reestablish the Office of Noise Abate-
ment and Control which would coor- dinate airport noise reduction efforts by the federal government. In addi- tion, the office would update or de- velop noise standards, provide tech- nical assistance to local communi- ties and promote education and re- search as well as conduct a study of airport noise.
"Passage of this bill would help provide some relief to the New Jersey communities that are experiencing high amounts of aircraft noise from the major airports in this region.
"The observance of International Noise Awareness Day is an ideal time to center our attention on this par- ticular noise problem which has been the source of a great deal of frustra- tion and irritation in many areas of New Jersey, including the legislative (22nd) district I represent," Assem- blyman Bagger said.
Assemblyman Bagger added that he and Assemblyman Alan M. Au- gustine, of Scotch Plains who also represents the 22nd district, are prime sponsors of Assembly Resolution No. 32 which expresses the General Assembly's support for principles contained in proposed federal legis- lation concerning aircraft noise.
The 22nd Legislative District in- cludes Westfield, Mountainside, Scotch Plains and Fanwood.
