FED BILLS to increase wireless radiation – and action

90 industry bills to promote wireless & antennas are moving quickly through the House and Senate, and some are set for a vote any day now. Depending on the bill, changes are:

  • cell towers anywhere, such as your front lawn, removing all local control;
  • deploy in national parks and forests;
  • environmental review elimination;
  • eliminate 5G security requirements;
  • wireless in agriculture promotion (favoring Big Ag and harming pollinators);
  • speed satellite deployment (harmful to the atmosphere, etc.);
  • etc.

The audacity these bills has led to, as seems usual now, opposition from local government and related associations: U.S. Conference of Mayors, National League of Cities, National Association of Counties, Alliance for Community Media.

The easiest thing to do is to sign a petition for legislators at Children’s Health Defense or Environmental Health Trust – the CHD form is here for one of the worst bills and the EHT form for 50 bills is here.

If you can, reach out and call your federal legislators and educate them, too. There is a wealth of resources on these bills, such as follows – also included is a the list of some Massachusetts legislators:
