Statewide Advocacy Work Wins Governor’s Veto on SB556

On or about August 12th of this year I joined group of advocates: good, hard-working folks with big hearts and an undying determination to keep our communities safe from harm.  The project to educate our legislators, and clear the understanding relating to what would and would not close the digital divide.  I pulled the following excerpt from an Op_Ed recently published in CalMatters.org.  “Community groups, unions (such as the Communication Workers of America) and parents who fear their children may be harmed by unregulated deployment of wireless infrastructure are on to this nonsense. They recently asked for, and were granted, the governor’s veto on Senate Bill 556, one of the ALEC bills.

Do we really want to be like China, who leads the world in 5G deployment?

During the Senate Committee Hearing in April 2021, Senator Dodd said we got to be more like China, completely missing the fact that China’s citizens have no privacy; “5G will bring a new level of invasive surveillance”; “5G has enabled China to install 626 million CCTV cameras, one camera for every two persons,” as a matter of tracking its citizens’ every move.  This is not the America we want to live in, is it?  Click learn more, Internet security experts weigh-in on price of “convenience”.
