        Introduced  by  Sen.  AVELLA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

        AN ACT to amend chapter 154 of the laws of 1921, relating  to  the  port

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-

     5    1. The port authority shall conduct a noise and land use compatibility
     6  study. Such study shall be conducted in the manner outlined  by  federal
     7  aviation  regulations,  as  set  forth in 14 Code of Federal Regulations
     8  Part 150, and shall recommend  operational  and  land  use  measures  to
     9  improve  the  compatibility of air terminals with surrounding land uses,
    10  or such study shall result in sufficient detail to support a request for
    11  noise mitigation funding to be used by the port authority to noise insu-

    12  late homes impacted by operations at airports under the control  of  the
    13  port authority.
    14    2.  The  port authority shall submit to the governors and the legisla-
    15  tures of each state a report detailing  the  port  authority's  findings
    16  pursuant to the study required by this article. The port authority shall
    17  make  such  report  available  to the public by June first, two thousand
    18  thirteen.
    19    3. The port authority shall hold biennial public  hearings,  at  which
    20  members  of  the  public  shall have the right to be heard regarding the
    21  identification of aircraft noise issues. Such public hearings  shall  be
    22  held in the counties of Kings, Queens and Nassau, state of New York, and

    23  in  the  counties  of Union and Essex, state of New Jersey, and shall be
    24  attended by at least one commissioner appointed by each state. The  port
    25  authority shall develop amendments and changes to the report required by

    27  input.

                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.

     1    § 2. This act shall take effect upon the enactment  into  law  by  the
     2  state  of New Jersey of legislation having an identical effect with this
     3  act, but if the state of New Jersey  shall  have  already  enacted  such

     4  legislation  this act shall take effect immediately. The chairman of the
     5  port  authority  of New York and New Jersey shall notify the legislative
     6  bill drafting commission upon the occurrence of the enactment of article
     7  15-B of chapter 154 of the laws of 1921 in order that the commission may
     8  maintain an accurate and timely effective data base of the official text
     9  of the laws of the state of New York in  furtherance  of  effecting  the
    10  provisions  of section 44 of the legislative law and section 70-b of the
    11  public officers law.
