Good Afternoon,Thank you to those who worked with their legislators to bring back important wireless radiation bills from last session.

We know public policy is a marathon, not a sprint. It generally takes several sessions for a bill to pass and we are grateful so many of the Massachusetts bills progressed last session. That bodes well for this session, as now the bills have some legs under them.

We need your help at this juncture.

Timeline: The bills were introduced last Friday. It is important for each of us in Massachusetts to now call our legislators and ask them to co-sponsor the bills. They don’t need to be experts on this, they just need to hear from a few people in the district in order to sign on; i.e., let them know voters care and they will support it.

Deadline for House Reps to co-sponsor: Next Fri, 2/1/19 
Senators have up until the public hearing, which we believe could be anytime in the next 18 months.

Please suggest family, friends and colleagues in your town and across the state do the same. The more co-sponsors a bill gets, the stronger it is perceived as it moves through the legislative process.

It’ll only take you a few minutes to call and email your state legislators — it’s important to do both as they can get hundreds of emails in a day and may never see yours if you don’t call to let them know it’s there.

I’ve provided brief suggested language for a call and an email below; please call now — anytime day or night.

(If you’re not from Massachusetts, we hope you will be inspired to work with your legislators where you are to introduce similar bills. We will be in touch again as the MA bills are assigned to committees and public testimony is sought from all over.)

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for exercising your civic rights!

Kind regards,

Cece

Step 1: Look up the names, phone numbers and email addresses of your legislators here if you don’t already know them.

Step 2: Call each office and convey the following suggested one-minute message (staff members have been very welcoming, and after hours voice messages count too):

Hello,

My name is (insert name) from (insert town). I would like to ask (insert Senator/State Rep’s name) to please co-sponsor the bills addressing wireless radiation and public health.

In November the U.S. National Toxicology Program’s $30M study determined “clear evidence” of cancer and other harm from wireless technology. So it is urgent we all do what we can this session to protect the public, especially children, from wireless radiation exposures.

I will email you the list of eight sponsored Massachusetts bills – many of which advanced last session. I am sending it to (recite legislator’s email address) and would appreciate you sharing it with (him/her).

Thanks for your help with co-sponsorship of these critical wireless radiation bills. Good-bye.

Step 3: Copy and paste the following into an email:

Subject: Please Co-Sponsor Wireless Radiation Bills

Thank you for facilitating my phone request to co-sponsor the following wireless radiation bills.

As I mentioned, in November the U.S. National Toxicology Program’s $30M study determined “clear evidence” of cancer and other harm from wireless technology. Additional studies show children are especially vulnerable so it is urgent we ensure safe technology is used in the Commonwealth.

I’d appreciate confirmation my legislator will co-sponsor the bills below.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Respectfully,
