URGENT CALL TO ACTION AGAINST CALIFORNIA SB649- click here for more info:
We just got word that the vote on SB 649 could be as early as today, if not tomorrow. We are aware AT&T and others in support of SB 649 had large packets filled with letters in support of SB 649 delivered to the Sacramento offices of all Assembly members on Friday. To counter that, please call today. Call as many offices as you can and the message can be as simple as PLEASE VOTE NO ON SB 649. Feel free to share this message.
Here is the list of Assemblymembers. http://assembly.ca.gov/assemblymembers You can find the “916” phone number with ease and call. The legislators appear to be listening more to the following:
1) 300 of 400 cities in Calif and 47 of 58 counties are opposed. We do not want to lose local control.
2) The firefighters are protected as fire stations are exempt from SB 649. What about the rest of us?
Also: I am concerned about cell towers constantly exposed my children/grandchildren to a 2b carcinogen (same category as DDT). There is no off switch for this. The exposure will be at home, at school, at work, absolutely everywhere, and this does not seem like prudent public policy. Would we do the same with DDT which is in the same “possible human carcinogen” category? [It was banned in the US in 1972.]
Use whatever argument you prefer … liability is not clearly covered, property devaluation, will ruin the appearance of our community …. etc.
Keep it short. The offices will simply put you down as a yes or no. It’s all about numbers today.
PLEASE CALL RIGHT NOW IF POSSIBLE, AND STRONGLY OPPOSE SB 649
