Cardin, Van Hollen Say FAA Reauthorization Will Boost Maryland Airports

October 3rd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (Both D-Md.) today lauded Senate passage of a bipartisan, five-year reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that will now go to the president for his signature. In addition to stabilizing grant funding for airport improvements and passenger safety and right-to-know measures, the legislation includes provisions put forward by both Cardin and Van Hollen to mitigate the noise levels from incoming and outgoing flights at both Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington Airport (BWI) and Washington National Airport (DCA). The senators have been working for years with local Maryland communities, facilitating meetings and discussions between the FAA and local residents to bring some relief to those most harshly affected by recent changes in flight paths.
