                                        AN ACT
    1-1  relating to noise abatement requirements of certain municipal
    1-2  airports.
    1-4        SECTION 1.  Subsection (c), Section 16A, Municipal Airports

   1-24  December 31, 1997 <1996>, provide the replacement airport.
    2-1        SECTION 2.  The importance of this legislation and the
    2-2  crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
    2-3  emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
    2-4  constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
    2-5  days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
    2-6  and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
    2-7  passage, and it is so enacted.
