49 U.S. Code § 47521 - Findings
FindingsCongress finds that—
community noise concerns have led to uncoordinated and inconsistent restrictions on aviation that could impede the national air transportation system;
local interest in aviation noise management shall be considered in determining the national interest;
community concerns can be alleviated through the use of new technology aircraft and the use of revenues, including those available from passenger facility charges, for noise management;
revenues controlled by the United States Government can help resolve noise problems and carry with them a responsibility to the national airport system;
revenues derived from a passenger facility charge may be applied to noise management and increased airport capacity; and
a precondition to the establishment and collection of a passenger facility charge is the prescribing by the Secretary of Transportation of a regulation establishing procedures for reviewing airport noise and access restrictions on operations of stage 2 and stage 3 aircraft.
