County Commissioners Plan Data Quality Act Petition
The Cincinnati Enquirer recently reported that the County Commissioners of Hamilton County, Ohio, intend to file a Data Quality Act Petition with the Federal Aviation Administration. Their DQA Petition will challenge and request correction of the FAA's estimates of noise and annoyance levels from planes using Kentucky International Airport. The Commissioners have a study that they claim shows far higher noise and annoyance levels than FAA's studies.

Reports like this demonstrate that the DQA is being used by an increasingly diverse population to challenge and correct an increasingly diverse universe of federal government information.

This was always the DQA's intended purpose. By its terms, and by the terms of the OMB and agency DQA Guidelines, the DQA provides a new means for "any affected person" to seek correction of any government-disseminated information that does not meet high quality standards.
