Action Alert – Cell Tower Installations too close to home?

Action Alert —Concerned about cell tower installations adjacent to your residence and around the neighborhood (and across the city and state)?

SB 649, the bill that eliminates local control over cell towers in the public right of way and on public property statewide, passed by only a few votes in the Assembly on 9/13 and the Senate on 9/14. Our Westside elected officials voted No.

WSSM strongly supports local control and joins those opposing SB 649, along with the California Dept. of Finance, the City and County of Los Angeles, Mayor Garcetti, LA City Council, and the Westside Regional Alliance of Councils (WRAC). WSSM will be writing the Governor and urging a veto as well. Individual constituents and groups are encouraged to write to Gov. Brown ASAP email via the Gov’s Legislative Secretary Tom Dyer,, and/or call 916-445-2841 or fax 916-558-3160
