SB1069 is now making its rounds through the hearings process. A public hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, 6 February at 10:00 at the State Capitol in conference room 211. If you feel strongly about aircraft noise, this is a must-attend meeting. The bill is also now open to public testimony. You can read the bill and submit online testimony by clicking HERE.
Your online submission of testimony could be as simple as saying "I support the imposition of restrictions on commercial tour helicopter operations" to further elaboration recommending that there be penalties associated with violations - there presently are no penalties outlined in the draft bill.
Your testimony would be VERY helpful in moving this bill forward, and ensuring that YOUR input is heard.
