April 19, 2007 – Senator Liston A. Davis said he has been greatly encouraged by the effort of the Division of Nursing, University of the Virgin Islands, for bringing awareness to significant elements of his bill “to enact the Virgin Islands Noise Pollution Act.”
The bill went to public hearing during the course of the 26th Legislature and was even on the agenda for the final session of the body.
“However, the session was abruptly adjourned sine die and thus the measure died and was resubmitted for consideration in the 27th Legislature,” explained Senator Davis.
The St. Thomas-St. John Senator said that the Division of Nursing at UVI, under the leadership of Maxine A Nunez DPH, Professor of Nursing, has made tremendous contributions toward publicizing the measure and bringing some of its important elements to light.
“I would be remiss if I did not laud and commend not only Dr. Maxine Nunez but Nihjole Heskey, Student Nurse at UVI for facilitating an essay contest between students of Addelita Cancryn and Bertha Boschulte Middle Schools on the subject of “noise pollution: how it affects my community and what we can do to correct it.” The purpose of the essay contest was to sensitize children on the negative impact that noise pollution has on our community,” said Senator Davis.
The St. Thomas-St. John Senator said that he plans to call some of the essayists and the UVI facilitator to present testimony before the Legislature when his comprehensive noise pollution bill comes up for committee hearing.
“I am hoping that this important piece of proposed legislation can be expedited since it will inure to the benefit of our entire community,” concluded Senator A. Davis.
