H. CON. RES. 187
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
September 28, 1999
Received and referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and
Expressing the sense of Congress regarding the European Council noise
rule affecting hushkitted and reengined aircraft.
Whereas for more than 50 years, the International Civil Aviation Organization
(in this resolution referred to as the ``ICAO'') has been the single
entity vested with authority to establish international noise and
emissions standards and, through the ICAO's efforts, aircraft noise has
decreased by an average of 40 percent since 1970;
Whereas the ICAO is currently working on an expedited basis on even more
stringent international noise standards, taking into account economic
reasonableness, technical feasibility, and environmental benefits;
Whereas international noise and emissions standards are critical to maintaining
the economic viability of United States aeronautical industries and to
obtaining their ongoing commitment to progressively more stringent noise
Whereas European Council Regulation No. 925/1999, banning certain aircraft
meeting the highest internationally recognized noise standards from
flying in Europe, undermines the integrity of the ICAO process and
undercuts the likelihood that new Stage 4 aircraft noise standards will
Whereas while no regional standard is acceptable, European Council Regulation
No. 925/1999 is particularly offensive because there is no scientific
basis for the regulation and because the regulation has been carefully
crafted to protect European aviation interests while imposing arbitrary,
substantial, and unfounded cost burdens on United States aeronautical
Whereas the vast majority of aircraft that will be affected by European Council
Regulation No. 925/1999 are operated by United States flag carriers; and
Whereas implementation of European Council Regulation No. 925/1999 will result
in a loss of jobs in the United States and may cost United States
aeronautical industries in excess of $2,000,000,000: Now, therefore, be
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
(1) if European Council Regulation No. 925/1999 is not
rescinded by the European Council at the earliest possible
date, the Secretaries of Transportation and State should take
all appropriate actions to ensure that a petition regarding the
regulation is filed with the International Civil Aviation
Organization pursuant to Article 84 of the Chicago Convention;
(2) the Secretaries of Commerce, State, and Transportation
and other appropriate parties should use all reasonable means
available to them to ensure that the goal of having the
regulation rescinded is achieved.
Passed the House of Representatives September 27, 1999.
