As part of his veto of any legislation which created a new program or had a fiscal impact during the Pandemic, Governor Hogan vetoed HB310/SB184. “University of Maryland, Baltimore – Study on the Health Effects of Air Traffic Noise.” The legislation would have required “the University of Maryland, Baltimore to study the health effects of air traffic noise on communities near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport since the implementation of the Next Generation Air Transportation System; requiring the study to evaluate health outcomes and certain costs; requiring the Governor to provide in the 2022 budget at least $100,000 for the study.”

The Senate bill was sponsored by District 12 Senator Clarence Lam and was cosponsored by Howard County Senators Guy Guzzone and Katie Fry Hester. The House bill was sponsored by District 12 Delegate Terri Hill, and the cosponsors included Howard County Delegates Eric Ebersole, Jessica Feldmark, and Jen Terrasa.
