Maryland State Delegates Marc Korman, Susan Lee, William Frick, and Ariana Kelly sent a letter on May 8, 2017 (see attached below) to Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh asking him to consider legal action against the FAA regarding recent DCA flight path changes.

The Maryland District 16 Team has been working with local and federal officials on the severe airplane noise heard by constituents under new flight paths. Our skies and airplanes are federally regulated, but we have been trying to brainstorm ways to help from the state level. The Maryland Aviation Administration has communicated the concern to the Maryland members of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which oversees National and Dulles Airports.  We have thanked the Governor for this but also asked him to raise the issue with our regional and federal partners during his conversations with them..

Also, PDF copies of these and additional Letters from Elected Officials regarding DCA flight path changes are available under the folder "Elected Officials Letters & FAA Response Letters" on the Downloads and Templates tab.
