Sample SB-556 Caller Script and Fact Sheet:
Hello, My name is _______ and I am a California resident. I am calling to express my strong opposition to SB-556 which will be considered by the Committee on Communications and Conveyance tomorrow, July 7th. SB-556 undermines local control over the siting of wireless antennas in public rights-of-way, does absolutely nothing to address the digital divide, and tips the scale in favor of giant wireless corporations over the interests of Californians. Please log my strong opposition to this bill. Thank you!
