The second part comprises 17 appendices that list individual organizations in Illinois that deal with specific issues, such as nutrition, self-help for hard of hearing, alcohol help lines, Alzheimers or radio services for the blind.

Other reports

Enterprise Zones in Illinois, by Institute for Public Affairs, Sangamon State University, for Illinois Tax Foundation, 201 E. Adams, Suite 350, Springfield 62701 (August 1991), 66pp.; $10.

Illinois has established 86 enterprise zones since passage of the Enterprise Zone Act in the fall of 1982. While the local officials and business leaders who were interviewed for this study had positive statements to make about the impact of such zones, the researchers found that many aspects of the program had not fulfilled the original promise. They, therefore, concluded that the state should not create any new enterprise zones, the focus of the program should be broadened, the marketing of the program should be strengthened at both the local and the state levels, the monitoring and evaluation of the program should be improved, and the areas of greatest need should be targeted.

Airport Noise: A Guide to the FAA Regulations Under the Airport Noise and Capacity Act, Cutler and Stanfield, 700 Fourteenth Street, N.W., 10th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20005 (January 1992), 27pp. plus appendices.

While this report is not about Illinois and does not mention any airports in this state, the subject is of such interest to a number of communities that this booklet would seem to warrant a mention in this column. It is primarily designed to help airport proprietors deal effectively with the FAA's new national program to review noise and access restrictions on aircraft operations.
