Santa Monica Airport: Making Progress

Great news from Sacramento . . . Yesterday, the State Assembly passed AB 2501, legislation offered by our hard-working Assemblyman Ted Lieu that would give us an essential tool to help protect West Los Angeles, Mar Vista and Santa Monica neighborhoods from pollution from idling jets at Santa Monica Airport.

It has been a long and lonely battle for airport neighbors to get anyone to pay attention to their complaints about noise, pollution and other ill effects from the airport. During my campaign for office last year, I highlighted this issue, and have begun to hold public hearings on the issue.

I am very pleased by the news that the Assembly has taken leadership on this issue. I strongly urge the Senate and the governor to support this crucial piece of legislation, which is a first step in protecting our neighborhoods from the ill effects of the airport.

Let me also commend Ted Lieu for his leadership in Sacramento, and acknowledge the efforts of the Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution; particularly Marty Rubin and Joan Winters, for their hard work in crafting and promoting the legislation.

I also want to thank my City Council colleagues for their unanimous support of my resolution, putting the City of Los Angeles officially on record as a strong proponent of this legislation.

Stay tuned for further developments on this issue.

-Bill
