Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Tuesday ordered the state's top legal official to sue a federal agency over new airline flight routes that the Republican said have made many Maryland families "miserable in their own homes."

A lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration's NextGen program should include routes for both Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Reagan National Airport, Hogan wrote to Democratic Attorney General Brian Frosh.

"This program has made many Maryland families miserable in their own homes with louder and more frequent flights which now rattle windows and doors," the governor wrote.

MCQSC would like to immensely thank Governor Hogan for this decision as it is a promising development for MCQSC's mission.  
MCQSC also would like to thank all of the MCQSC volunteers, and our federal, state, and local elected government officials and all of their hardworking staff members who have been working tirelessly and continue to do so to help bring about change.
