Lawmaker passes bill codifying LaGuardia Perimeter Rule in an effort to reduce airplane noise in northeast Queens

A Queens lawmaker recently announced the passage of legislation that would continue to curb airplane noise that plagues the northeast portion of the borough.

Known as NY State Senate Bill S311 and sponsored by Senator John Liu, the bill codifies the LaGuardia Perimeter Rule, an existing restriction that bars nonstop flights beyond 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) from traveling to or from LaGuardia Airport. Exceptions to the rule include Saturday trips and flights to Denver, Colorado.
