CA State Senate “Presses Pause” on SB 649 (But May “Press Play” on May 25th…)

I was interviewed on Monday by Public News Service reporter Suzanne Potter, regarding the campaign against #SB649,the California bill that would force potentially millions of small-cell, high frequency antennas onto street poles, including on residential streets.

You can read the article and listen to the segment here.

Also, be sure to read a physician’s perspective on 5G: Vice President of Community Health for Santa Clara County Medical Assn. Cindy Russell: A 5G Wireless Future: Will it Give us a Smart Nation or Contribute to an Unhealthy One?

Call and fax Senate Appropriations Committee members today – Wednesday May 24th! Tell them to leave SB 649 in the suspense file. Today is the last day to call before their meeting – they vote Thursday. Members below.

Points include:
– SB 649 needs to stay in suspense file until next year; allow more time for careful study
– Costs to the state and local governments not being considered
– Costs to the public not being considered
– Subsidy to telecommunications companies; give away of public land in the right of way
– No public consent
– Ohio cities are already suing the state over a similar bill.
— Emphasize costs
