BILL NUMBER:S3841

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 154 of the laws of 1921,
relating to the port authority of New York and New Jersey, in relation
to requiring a noise and land use compatibility study

PURPOSE:

This bill would require the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey,
to conduct a noise and land use compatibility survey as outlined under
federal aviation regulations as well as biennial public hearings
regarding aircraft noise issues

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends Chapter 154 of the laws of 1921 by adding a new
Article 15-B which requires the Port Authority of New York and New
Jersey to conduct a noise and land use compatibility survey as set
forth in 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 150. A report detailing
the findings of this study shall be submitted to the governors and
legislatures of New York and New Jersey by June 1, 2013. This section
further requires the port authority to hold biennial public hearings
at which the public will be heard regarding the identification of
aircraft noise issues.

Section two states that this act will take effect upon its enactment
into law by the states of New York and New Jersey.

JUSTIFICATION:

The three airports operated by the Port Authority of New York and New
Jersey collectively represent the busiest airport system in the United
States. Over time there has been a dramatic increase in the number of
commercial and cargo flights coming into and out of John F. Kennedy
International, Newark Liberty International and LaGuardia Airports.
While this increase has provided additional flight offerings to New
York and New Jersey consumers it has also resulted in an increase in
aircraft noise around communities in proximity to these facilities.
Part 150 of the federal aviation regulations provides a mechanism for
considering the issue of aircraft noise and developing a plan to
address noise issues that gives due consideration to residents
effected by aircraft noise issues. Part 150 studies have been
conducted by many airports around the United States including major
Northeast and Atlantic region airports such as Boston Logan,
Philadelphia International and Baltimore/ Washington International
Airports, Further, FAA grant funding maybe available for conducting
such a study as well as noise abatement efforts that may be
recommended. The purpose of requiring the Port Authority to undertake
such a study as well as conduct biennial hearings is to ensure that
aircraft noise be given proper consideration by airport operators when
determining the use of different runways and approach paths.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012: S.7863

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:


This legislation has no fiscal implications.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

§2. This act shall take effect upon the enactment into law by the
state of New Jersey of legislation having an identical effect with
this act, but if the state of New Jersey shall have already enacted
such legislation this act shall take effect immediately. The chairman
of the port authority of New York and New Jersey shall notify the
legislative bill drafting commission upon the occurrence of the
enactment of article 15-B of chapter 154 of the laws of 1921 in order
that the commission may maintain an accurate and timely effective ate
base of the official text of the laws of the state of New York in
furtherance of effecting the provisions of section 44 of the
legislative law and section 70-b of the public officers law.
