Santa Monica Airport

Last week Bill joined Rep. Jane Harman and Marty Rubin with Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution on a walking tour of Mar Vista at the outskirts of Santa Monica Airport. The Councilman and Congresswoman met with neighbors to hear their concerns about Santa Monica Airport and talked about local, state, and federal efforts to deal with the problem.

I was a real eye-opener to witness firsthand how often the big business jets fly in and hear the jets as they blasted their engines at the end of the runway before takeoffs.

The Councilman and Congresswoman talked about Assemblyman Ted Lieu's bill, AB 2501, which would require Santa Monica Airport to monitor the taxi and idle times of jets and planes flying out of the airport. This bill would help provide the needed data to determine the air quality impact of such idling.

I think the neighbors who came out for the tour were very appreciative of Bill and Jane's visit. Many of them said they were glad to finally see coordination at the local, state, and federal level to address their concerns about Santa Monica Airport
