Schiff has long supported a mandatory nighttime curfew for Bob Hope Airport so that Burbank residents can sleep peacefully. In November 2009, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rejected the Bob Hope Airport Authority's application for a curfew for nighttime between 10 pm and 7 am at Bob Hope Airport. Earlier this year, Schiff and other Southern California Members introduced the Valley-Wide Noise Relief Act (H.R. 842) that would allow Bob Hope and Van Nuys Airports to implement nighttime curfews. Schiff offered the legislation as an amendment to the FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act (H.R. 658). Though the amendment did not secure enough votes to pass, it did achieve a strong level of support. In a subsequent meeting with the FAA Administrator, the Administrator expressed a willingness to work with Schiff on this important issue. He continues to work with the FAA, airports in our region and the affected communities to help achieve meaningful nighttime noise protection for the citizens of Burbank.
