Several members of Congress have introduced H.R. 3001, the Quiet Communities Act of 2019, which would reestablish the federal noise pollution control office within the EPA. If you are concerned about airport noise, helicopters, road noise, trains, or any other type of loud and excessive noise, please contact your representatives and senators and voice your support for this effort.

The Noise Free America website has more information on the bill, as well as articles on noise-related issues such as its impact on health.

The bill was introduced on May 23, 2019 by Representative Grace Meng (D., New York) and has 34 co-sponsors.

The bill has been sent to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce (which is chaired by Representative Frank Pallone, a Democrat from New Jersey) as well as the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (which is chaired by Representative Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon).

Within the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials, which is chaired by Representative Daniel Lipinski, a Democrat from Illinois.
