TAKE ACTION BEFORE TUESDAY, JULY 11, 2017
SB 649 gives telecommunications companies rubber stamp approval to install powerful microwave emitting antennas for 4G/5G every 4 to 12 houses on utility poles along the street! It removes local city and county authority over cellular facility placement and we would have no legal right to stop it.
SB 649 would put radio frequency radiation (RFR) cell towers on every block in every neighborhood and countryside in California with an over the counter permit. PLEASE contact your representatives and those on the committee to oppose this bill by Tuesday July 11.
Oppose SB 649 because it eliminates local zoning authority, conflicts with federal and other laws, and increases harmful radio frequency radiation (RFR). International independent scientists are calling for reducing RFR based on peer reviewed published science showing RFR harms the public and nature, and children are especially vulnerable.
SEE WHAT SOME OF THESE DEVICES LOOK LIKE:
From the League of California Cities: “…As if SB 649 wasn’t wreaking enough havoc on the ability for cities to protect their residents, the June 20, 2017 amendments completely deregulate and eliminate all oversight for “micro-wireless” facilities which can be equipment nearly three feet long dangling between utility poles, raising significant public safety issues such as obstructing traffic sight distance without any oversight. The bill also now applies a utility pole “attachment rate” formula which is inappropriate for equipment being placed on city buildings, street and traffic lights.
As amended, the bill is no longer limited to just “small cells.” It now applies broadly to all telecommunications providers and the equipment they use from “micro-wireless” to “small cell” to “macro-towers.” It’s clear from the direction of this bill, that this is not about 5G wireless deployment, but more about local deregulation of the entire telecommunications industry.
CALIFORNIA CITY OFFICIALS CAN SEND A LETTER HERE:
Though this is focused on what’s happening in California now, similar bills are being introduced throughout the nation with ALEC co-sponsoring the bills. Watch out for it in your state!
