oharepresser060815 300SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Ira Silverstein (D–Chicago) joined other state and federal lawmakers and local officials at a press conference today about concerns with rising noise levels from O’Hare International Airport.

 

The FAiR Coalition is a group of local organizations pursuing solutions to a mounting number of complaints from residents unhappy with a major increase in airport-related noise. They attended the press conference with officials today to call for action on these complaints, numbering 350,000 in March 2015 alone. House Joint Resolution 83, passed by both chambers of the General Assembly this spring, urges the City of Chicago to meet with the FAiR Coalition, federal officials and citizens to discuss solutions.

“It is past time to bring officials with the city, the airport and the FAA together to reduce the burden on O’Hare’s neighbors,” Sen. Silverstein said. “I co-sponsored this resolution to find an open, transparent means to compromise for neighboring communities and reasonable airport capacity.”

The resolution calls for timely and open communication about hearings in areas surrounding the airport and a halt to runway expansion until public input is complete.

“O’Hare is a critical transportation and economic hub to our region and our nation, but it can’t continue to be an unbearable burden on surrounding neighborhoods,” Silverstein said.

The noise issues stem from a dramatic shift in air traffic capacity from diagonal runways to east-west runways.

silverstein palc passes SenateSPRINGFIELD–The Illinois Senate passed a measure today sponsored by State Senator Ira Silverstein (D–Chicago) to ban powdered alcohol in Illinois. Senate Bill 67 also sets penalties for its sale.

Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina and Vermont have already banned “Palcohol” or are considering legislation to ban it. Powdered alcohol is a product not yet for sale but expected to be dangerous, particularly for minors.

“Powdered alcohol has the potential for abuse and alcohol poisoning, especially by young people,” Silverstein said. “The ease of concealing a lightweight, 1-ounce packet for minors to carry in situations where binge drinking is predictable or liquid alcohol is prohibited is an avoidable risk.”
