Noise Control Act



In a message dated 97-06-12 13:46:36 EDT, you write:

<< This looks like the 1972 Noise Control Act, as incorporated in the U.S.
Code:
 http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/42/ch65.html
 
  >>

    Can you give a quick summary of what the Act prohibits
    and what kind of enforcement mechanisms are in place?

    How about grants to state governments for noise control?

    Has the law been amended to deal with the technological
    realities and new noise devices of consequent decades, 
    such as boom cars and more powerful amplifiers for rock
    bands and stereos?
