New FCC Proceeding Exempting Cell Tower/Radio Tower Expansions from Local Approval
A current FCC proceeding may exempt many more changes to cell tower/radio tower sites from complying with state and local laws, including weakening/preempting compliance with health and safety-related codes and requirements. This would significantly expand the preemption set forth in the FCC’s 2014 Wireless Siting Order. The program will cover the 2014 Order (briefly), the expanded preemption being considered and significant municipal concerns and objections to such expansion.
