Talking Points for Calls to Assembly Members

Hello, I live in ____(city)____ and I’m calling to urge Assembly Member ____(name)____ to oppose AB-537. It eliminates the permitting processes which are specific for local safety issues, and it will do nothing to eliminate the digital divide. It turns control over placement of cell towers and antennas to Big Telecom, it transfers the cost of legal challenges to fight unsafe or non-compliant wireless infrastructure to local governments, and the litigation costs will be prohibitive. We should not be promoting unsafe and costly wireless technology. We should be installing wired fiber-optics to and through the premises.”
