Americans for Responsible Technology and Grassroots teamed up the week of September 9, 2018 to visit members of the U.S. Congress House and Senate Commerce Committees, which have jurisdiction over the Federal Communications Commission, in order to inform legislative directors and aides about the science on wireless radiation, which has been “memory-holed” by all who fast track 5G wireless with its special cell towers that must be placed within very close proximity to consumers residences, or even on their properties, in order to implement that technology.
The team discussed “long-outdated exposure guidelines of the FCC, and the fact that no federal agency is currently authorized to consider the health impacts of deployment.” Those guidelines were set in 1996!
According to the email I received from the group,
The wireless companies and their friends at the FCC have decided that Congress moves too slowly, and they’re afraid that the STREAMLINE ACT won’t be passed this session. Meanwhile, more and more studies and articles about RF microwave radiation are coming out, and communities all over the country are balking at the deployment of 5G.
So the FCC has decided to speed up the “race” to deploy 5G by unilaterally pre-empting local control over the placement of 5G equipment in every community in America. The new FCC rule, which is likely to be approved in a public meeting on the 26th of September, will do pretty much everything the STREAMLINE ACT was supposed to do.
Several organizations of local officials have vowed to sue the FCC if the rule is approved, so it may not go into effect right away. This will give us time to continue our efforts to educate lawmakers on this issue.
Here is a new video the group developed as an education tool. They ask for your support, as they expect to be back in Washington, DC, this week ahead of the September 26th FCC meeting, working to protect consumers’ rights and health.'
