Winger Moves Environmental Impact Measure Forward

State Representative Christine Winger has advanced a legislative measure to help reduce noise from O’Hare Airport on the surrounding communities, and increase awareness of the airport’s environmental effects. 

Representative Winger has sponsored legislative measures throughout her tenure in the House to advocate for solutions for the neighboring communities who have been dealing with increased noise from the airport, as well as other adverse effects. This week, Rep. Winger presented a House Resolution to urge the Federal Aviation Administration to focus on the environment surrounding O’Hare Airport.

The resolution, HJR110, provides that more money be allocated from the Federal Aviation Administration Passenger Facility Charge. These additional funds would be provided to the FAA to support community airport noise mitigation and community airport air quality monitoring.

This initiative, which was adopted by the Transportation, Roads and Bridges committee this week in Springfield, is another step forward in her effort to fight for O’Hare’s neighbors.
