D. Telephone to Senators’ and Assembly Members’ Offices

On every weekday for the foreseeable future, we need to set a record for the highest volume of calls ever in the CA Legislature — opposing these three bills:

  1. SB.556: the “Demolish Local Control & Child Endangerment Wireless” Bill
  2. AB.537: the “Deemed Permit-Approved, Deemed Permit-Issued WTF” Bill
  3. SB.378: the “Cheap Micro-Trenching” Bill

Set a goal to make at least ten calls per day every weekday from Apr 20 through Oct 15, 2021 — or until we defeat all three of these bills by votes or vetos.

You can call every CA Senator and Assembly member listed here → https://wirecalifornia.org/ca-legislators/ — regardless if they are on the target Committees or are your representatives

We will keep a call-counter up to date here → https://wirecalifornia.org/calls

Please report who you called on what bill and what the response was on this form every day that you call — https://wirecalifornia.org/contact/

E. What is Really Going On . . .

We are experiencing an on-going opportunistic, willfully-blind shredding of our constitutional rights in the utter lack of due process in the delibrerations of many bills in the CA Legislature in 2021. Instead of simply allowing similar levels of participation that we secured back in 2017 to oppose SB.64930-45 minutes each for Proponents and Opponents of the bills — the “rules” adopted for the 2021 Senate and Assembly Committee hearings are a farce:

1. For EACH BILL in a CA Legislature Committee Hearing in 2021:

  • Only up to 15 minutes of presentation by the Proponents of the bill (two 2-3 minute presentations and a series of 10-second “me-to” statements to fill out the remaining 9-11 minutes.
  • Only up to 15 minutes of presentation by the Opponents of the bill (two 2-3 minute presentations and a series of 10-second “me-to” statements to fill out the remaining 9-11 minutes — and this time is being routinely cut short, so far .

These rules are effectively blocking the public from being able to effectively participate as stakeholders in bills that will forever demolish local control over the placement, construction and modification of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) of any size or any “G” in our counties, cities, towns and residential neighborhoods. The videos below are the evidence that proves this move afoot to cut the public out and shred our rights to address our grievances face-to-face to our State Government. The videos below show the evidence.
