FAA Rejects Bob Hope Airport Curfew

On November 2, 2009, the FAA released its decision rejecting the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority's application for a mandatory nighttime curfew at the Bob Hope Airport.  The Authority's application was the first formal request for a curfew under the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 (ANCA).  The FAA found that the application failed to satisfy four of six conditions imposed by Congress in ANCA.  Immediately following FAA's release of the decision, Representative Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) proposed that Congress enact legislation that would authorize a curfew at the airport.
