On October 15th, 2017 Governor Brown VETOED SB649, a bill that would have allowed the telecom industry to bypass traditional planning channels at the local government level, and install new cell towers on every power pole in the state with virtually no oversight.
While the telecom industry is licking its wounds now, they will likely be back soon with further attempts to erase local governments’ planning role. We must keep the pressure on.

Thank you to the thousands of you who traveled to Sacramento, called, faxed, and wrote the governor from all corners of the state, making this veto possible.
This is YOUR victory.
Also- a special shout out to the folks behind Scientists for Wired Technology who dropped everything and tirelessly worked to defeat this bill at the Capitol these last six months. Thank you! -SSM!
