Stop cell towers on every block!

Cell towers emit harmful radiation.
If SB 649 passes you could awake in 2018 to find a cell tower outside your bedroom
window, or on your children’s school. Senate Bill 649 would create a state mandated
system of cell towers every couple hundred feet apart. SB 649 would harm California.

• SB 649 would eliminate local control and public input.
• SB 649 would allow refrigerator-size cell equipment on utility poles, streetlights,
sidewalks, in parks, on schools and public buildings with no safety oversight.
• Cities would have no recourse to remove a tower even if everyone complained.
• Studies show effects of radiation include: fatigue, headaches, sleep problems,
anxiety, ringing in the ears, heart, learning and memory problems, increased
cancer risk, and more. Children are especially vulnerable. www.bioinitiative.org
• Studies show radiation harms nature, trees, birds, and bees.
299 cities, 47 counties, and dozens of health, environment, and consumer groups
oppose SB 649 including: AARP, Environmental Working Group, Sierra Club and
more! However, the telecom industry has given $15 million to legislators since 2013.
SB 649 has passed all committees and is soon headed for the Governor’s desk.

Tell Governor Jerry Brown to veto SB 649!
