Your AB537 Opposition Letter –  Due Today @ 5pm PST
Californians…take action now! The California State Legislature has introduced two dangerous bills, AB537 and SB556, which, if passed, would eviscerate local control over the deployment of wireless telecommunications facilities, including 5G antennas, in public rights-of-way.

If you live in California, it’s critical that you submit your comments in opposition to these two bills as soon as possible. Time is of the essence, and the more public opposition we can mount, the greater the likelihood that these bills won’t move forward. 

To submit a comment about a bill in the California State Legislature, you must use the State’s “Position Letter Portal.” To be included in the Committee analysis, letters in support or opposition of a bill must be submitted to the Committee five (5) business days prior to the day of the scheduled hearing on that bill.
 Access the CA Position Letter PortalCheck out the “Position Letter Portal” FAQ page for everything you need to know about how to successfully submit your letter of opposition. If you need further assistance, please email us here.

Many thanks to the group “Safe Tech for Santa Rosa” for alerting us to these proposed bills, and for developing informational flyers to help Californians take action.Timeline: Key Deadlines & Events

AB537 
 As a California resident, I strongly oppose bill AB537. 

Granting telecom companies free reign to expand their ever-growing wireless footprints in our neighborhoods is both undemocratic and represents an overreach of the State’s authority. The State must protect, not undermine, local control over public rights-of-way, and preserve the rights of local elected officials to decide how best to implement technologies in their communities. 

I do, however, support the expansion of  fiber optic networks to and through the premises. “Future proof” hardwired connections offer the fastest, safest, and most secure internet access of all.

Thank you for considering my comment, and please vote ‘no’ on AB537.
SB556
