A District of Columbia US Court of Appeals ruled that
PA Act 50 was signed into law in June, 2021 and became effective August 29, 2021. This law reduces local control and accelerates industry's rollout of 5G, which uses small radiofrequency/microwave (RF/MW) radiation transmitted by ubiquitous small cell towers usually in close proximity to homes.
ACT 50 was rushed through both the PA House and Senate before being signed into law by Governor Wolf on June 30, 2021. Public and professional testimony in opposition was not permitted over a period spanning more than 3 years in violation of the Sunshine Act. Act 50 will accelerate the placement and operation of RF/MW radiation antennas near homes, schools and workplaces. Need tests are not allowed nor are RF/MW radiation limits prescribed. Antennas can be up to 3 cubic feet in size with 28 cubic feet of supporting equipment.
1. Work with your municipality to develop the most protective ordinance you can.
2. Call your PA Senator and Representative and tell them to repeal Act 50 and oppose HB 2071.
3. Share our downloadable educational materials with your family, friends and lawmakers. These can be found on the 2nd to last page of this website, under "Resource Files." (Did you know... and Broadband Legislation...)
Legislators were not briefed on harm because doing so was prohibited, however, a course for physicians on this topic spans 4 days! The guidelines set by the FCC that industry counts on as assurance of safety were the subject of a recent US Court of Appeals ruling on August 13, 2021 (EHT et al v FCC). The FCC could not provide evidence to back up the guidelines in place and they ignored more than 10,000 pages of evidence of harm. See the evidence of harm on the legal files section of our website, in the FEDERAL Section Scroll down to see the evidence in a document containing links to 26 downloadable files. Please send these 26 files to your municipality and legislators, asking them to protect you from this harmful radiation. The FCC also failed to address:
You can read the August 13, 2021 ruling in this case on our website as well, in the LEGAL FILES tab under the 26 volumes of HARM file.
We have already paid for fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) but did not get it. Let's get our money back. Another court ruling, Irregulators v. FCC ruled that wireless companies did not provide the Fiber Optic service paid for by consumers over the past 30 years in extra fees on their monthly phone bills. Verizon alone owes Pennsylvanians 3.7 BILLION dollars. This money could be used to close the "digital divide" in rural areas. The Irregulators ruling frees the states to go after this money.
