Queens congresswoman calls on Port Authority to combat aircraft noise

Congresswoman Grace Meng recently announced a new push to reduce excessive aircraft noise in northeast Queens.

In a letter to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Executive Director Rick Cotton, Meng said that the LaGuardia Airport Draft Noise Compatibility Program introduced by the agency to combat aircraft noise does not go far enough for Queens residents who have been negatively impacted for too long.
