Alert On S 3157 – An Important Bill For Everyone To Oppose

Alert On S 3157 – An Important Bill For Everyone To Oppose

OVERVIEW

The Federal government is once again trying to strip away local authority over cell towers siting. Senators John Thune (R-SD) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) introduced the STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act (S.3157)

S.3157  is an effort to make Congressional law consistent with recent FCC actions. In 2017 and 2018, Telecom managed to get the FCC to pass sweeping regulations that strip municipalities of local zoning rights and greatly cut back environmental and historic reviews.

Following you will find further information about the bill and actions you can take to oppose it:

For a detailed look at how S.3157 would alter Section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, stripping municipalities and the public of our rights, please see:
http://scientists4wiredtech.com/legislation/2018-streamline-small-cell-deployment-act-s3157/

Here’s a simple description and easy template to take action to oppose S.3157.
http://emfsafetynetwork.org/take-action-to-stop-5g-senate-bill-s-3157/

Overview of S.3157 written by the National League of Cities
https://www.nlc.org/article/federal-advocacy-update-week-of-july-10-2018#Cell

The National League of Cities (NLC) opposes S. 3157. They wrote, “Despite urging from NLC and other local government advocates during the bill’s drafting phase, many preemptive provisions remain in the bill, including limiting the actions local governments can take on small cell wireless facility siting in an effort to make deployments cheaper, faster, and more consistent across jurisdictions.”
Please take a moment to do one or all of the following:
  1. Call your Federal representatives. If on the Senate Commerce Committee, please ask them to put a hold on S 3157.

Sample message:

“I’m calling to ask the (Senator or Representative) to please protect our rights and our property by prohibiting telecom companies from placing wireless transmitters all over our neighborhoods with no local review. We have the right to determine how to integrate technology into our own community. Telecom companies should not be allowed to override local control. Please do not allow S. 3157 or any other 5G bills to pass.”

  1. Email your representatives. You can use this link to find contact information for all U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives.  https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials
  2. Consider also contacting members of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. which is the Committee where S 3157 currently is awaiting a hearing. The full list of members can be found at the end of this post (scroll down) or at this link: https://www.commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/committeemembers
  3. The website https://zero5g.com, has an excellent letter and portal you can use for contacting your federal representatives. https://zero5g.com/take-action-usa/
  4. The National League of Cities will send a letter directly to your representatives in Congress for you. At this link, you can fill in your zip code (and your full address if your postal zone is split between jurisdictions), and the letter template will appear with a message to legislators generated by the National League of Cities (NLC).  http://advocacy.nlc.org/nlc/app/onestep-write-a-letter?0&engagementId=487075

PLEASE NOTE: The NLC opposes Federal control of small cell deployment, but does NOT mind small cells regulated by municipalities.  So instead of using the NLC generated letter, which has statements in support of small cells, either

  1. craft your own letter
  2. copy and paste the following text into their letter template
  3. use the letter given at this link, https://whatis5g.info/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Possible-letter-for-NLC-Template.pdf
Text to copy and paste into NLC letter template:

As a constituent, I am writing to express my opposition to the “Streamlining The Rapid Evolution And Modernization of Leading-edge Infrastructure Necessary to Enhance (STREAMLINE) Small Cell Deployment Act” (S. 3157).

S. 3157 is similar to a California bill (SB 649) which would have created a state mandated system of cell towers and eliminated local review and safety oversight. SB 649 was opposed by 300 cities, 47 counties and over 100 community, planning, health, environment and justice organizations. SB 649 was vetoed SB 649 by Governor Brown on October 15, 2017.

The threat of public and environmental harm from wireless radiation is real and growing. Local control is needed to ensure community safety, welfare and compliance with federal, state, and local laws.

Peer-reviewed published science shows wireless radiation harms public health and nature. Health effects include: fatigue, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety, ringing in the ears, heart problems, learning and memory disorders, increased cancer risk, and more. Children, the ill, and the elderly are more vulnerable.

International independent scientists are calling for biologically-based public exposure standards and reducing wireless radiation.

S. 3157 represents a direct affront to traditionally-held local authority. S. 3157 introduces an unnecessary, one-size-fits-all preemption of local jurisdiction. The bill also imposes unfair and inappropriate timelines on local governments.

For more information see this joint letter to Congress asking you to oppose any and all bills related to 5G and wireless radiation expansion: http://emfsafetynetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Letter-to-Congress-2017-1.pdf

SYNERGIES AND RFR SAFETY LIMITS

SYNERGIES AND RFR SAFETY LIMITS

by Dr. Ronald N. Kostoff

This document examines the role of synergies in setting of safety limits.

Studies that include synergies are necessary for credible RFR safety limit
setting. Single stressor experiments as the main determinants for safety/exposure limits may be insufficient for human health protection from these potentially toxic contributing factors.

The results from studies of synergistic effects will take years to produce. If we continue along our
present path, hundreds of thousands of new small cell towers will have been installed during that research
period. The damage will have been done by the time the results are produced.

We need a moratorium on new cell tower construction until such results have been obtained.

Protecting the Maryland Public from Harm by Wireless Technology

New document by Ronald M. Powell Ph.D.
Jan. 13th, 2018

If you are writing to our Maryland state legislators about protecting the public from harm by wireless radiation, here is a relatively short document to introduce them to the wireless challenges their constituents are facing. This document can also be used for other jurisdictions.

Ronald M. Powell Ph.D. urges Maryland State Legislators to protect the health of the people of Maryland from the onslaught of wireless radiation. This document addresses the health impacts of radiation from smart meters, cell towers, WiFi in schools, and 5g small cells.  

“The levels of man-made radiofrequency radiation in our environment, including right here in Maryland, are increasing.This increase is caused by the introduction of more and more wireless devices, without an
understanding of the health consequences.”

Kiss Your Child and Fight for Them; Letter from a Mom to FCC about Wireless and Children

Kiss Your Child and Fight for Them; Letter from a Mom to FCC about Wireless and Children

 

The following letter was written by a mom who tragically lost her one-year-old to leukemia. She learned too late that WiFi can potentially be a contributing factor in childhood leukemia.

The mom sent this letter to Commissioner Rosenworcel through the email address the Commissioner set up for the public to report on broadband coverage gaps – loosely interpreted to include other broadband problems.

broadbandfail@fcc.gov.

For more information and instructions on writing your own communication to the FCC opposing 5g and all wireless expansion, please see,  https://whatis5g.info/action/2017/11/not-happy-with-broadband-service-send-email-to-broadbandfailfcc-gov/

To contact your federal representatives, please see, https://whatis5g.info/small-cells/

 

Dear Entrusted Officials,

Raise your hand if your child has died before you. Hug your child if he or she is healthy. 

I write today to share that the choices you make about the environment we call home are far reaching, and that our precious homes must be protected.

RF radiation has never been proven safe for children. Ever. And the FCC wants to break down local barriers to deploy more of it?

RF radiation has been implicated by 400+ peer-reviewed studies as causing biological harms ranging from dizziness, sleeplessness and nausea to DNA damage, a precursor to cancer.

My daughter died before her second birthday of leukemia. How does this happen? As part of a university study, I learned that time in front of a WiFi-enabled computer while pregnant is a variable. 

My daughter’s death leaves my heart in the smallest of pieces. What was the happiest time in my life turned into tragedy the likes of which I couldn’t even imagine. Watching my husband carry her down the service elevator at the hospital to the funeral director’s car, parked back by the dumpster, for a last goodbye, is an image that will haunt me forever. Driving to the funeral parlor for several nights in a row to be with her dead body, while families were enjoying bedtime stories and playing games, is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. A child’s death will wreck you. 

Please urge further studies of this invisible and very pervasive radiation. Please institute setback laws that protect our children — in our homes and in their schools.

You may think you are on the precipice of a technological heyday. Instead, you may be paving the way to a long, steady, massive health catastrophe. 

Follow other countries who revere their young; they have stripped WiFi radiation from schools and libraries, and are going back to wired connections. I beg you to find the middle ground. I beg you to conduct tests applicable to children and use aggregated exposure models.

For my deceased daughter, for me, for my husband and her brother, think twice before irradiating millions of people because a bunch of telecom titans have sold you a promise that will harm the innocent.

Even if it kills just one, believe me, that’s one too many.
