Excerpt from the Potomac Almanac news article, mentioning the Montgomery County Quiet Skies Coalition's ongoing work with legislators and other key contacts:

U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-8) is aware of the problem and is working to reduce the noise in Montgomery County.
Lauren Doney, Raskin’s communications director, sent this statement about Raskin’s efforts via email: 
“Congressman Raskin is absolutely aware of the airplane noise issue in Montgomery County. We participate in the MoCo Quiet Skies Coalition’s monthly meetings (including the one [April 6]), and will be at this month’s Noise Working Group meeting at [Reagan National]. We are working closely with local elected officials and stakeholders to address this issue, and will actually be sending a joint letter to FAA with other elected officials, requesting a review of the new flight paths that have led to increased noise.”
