Local Elected Leaders, Business Leaders and Community Groups Unite in Long Beach to Stop the Big Telecom Power Grab
Leaders from Long Beach, Cities in Los Angeles County and Others Urge Lawmakers to Reject SB 649Long Beach Council Member Al Austin and representatives from the Downtown Long Beach Alliance, the Belmont Heights Community Association and the American Public Works Association of Southern California today urged the Legislature to reject SB 649 (Hueso). Opposed by more than 215 cities and dozens of counties, this legislation would virtually eliminate cities and counties’ authority to negotiate with telecommunications companies on the siting of wireless equipment in the public right of way and on public infrastructure. SB 649 would also cap the lease rates far below market rate, on public infrastructure. The group held a press conference this morning in Long Beach at Pierpoint Landing.
