Stop Smart Meters! organized a group train expedition to Sacramento on Monday May 9th in an attempt to wake up the California state legislature. “Hey, uh excuse me– legislature, pssst… the smart grid is hurting us.” Senate Bill 932- a mild cell phone advisory bill was up for a vote (it passed and now heads to the floor), the Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee (including Jared Huffman author of AB 37- the opt out bill that has now been put on hold) hearing our testimony on the health damage caused by smart meters, trading blows with the telecommunications industry in the halls, and a brewing revolution ignited by Code Pink, the Teachers Union, and students from all over CA. (65 people ended up getting arrested that night).
Though we were unable to record the full committee hearings due to ban on members of the public videotaping in the capitol, full video is available via the links below:
Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee- (our testimony on bad telecom bill begins at about 35:00, Smart Meter health damage testimony starts at about 43:00)
