State Rep. Michael McAuliffe (R-Chicago) on Monday joined the growing call for the Federal Aviation Administration to hold a public hearing on the huge shift in O’Hare International Airport jet noise following the debut of new flight paths last fall.
McAuliffe asked residents to sign an online petition at www.michaelmcauliffe.org demanding that the FAA hold new hearings and conduct a new environmental impact study.
The petition also urges that “immediate relief” be provided to affected homes through expansion of the city’s sound insulation program.
