On November 12, 2020 the Coconut Creek Florida Commission adopted a Resolution on 5G and radio frequency radiation “imploring the US Congress to allocate funding and direct a cross discipline federal agency study of the effects caused by exposure to current and proposed electromagnetic spectrum and radio frequency commissions on human health and the environment in light of the recent implementation of fifth generation technology and to use those findings to create science based laws or rules regarding limiting human and environmental exposure.”
On May 15, 2020 the City Manager of Coconut Creek Florida sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai stating:
“I would like to express our grave concerns regarding the above notice of proposed rulemaking. It is very concerning to the city that the Federal Communications Commission predicts many of its conclusions regarding cumulative RF exposure on conjecture alone rather than actual controlled field studies and medical evaluations. Further, scientific advancement should not come at unknown cost to human health… the city has a duty to educate the public on the FCC safety standards to ensure they are compile complied with but we are not seeing the full picture with such limited scientific information available the city respectfully request that the proposed rules are holding the bands until outcomes claiming to be highly unlikely I definitively resolved through scientific studies and evaluations let us work together to ensure that these technologies do not create unintended health consequences for generations to come.”
In the United States, the New Hampshire Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology has released its final report recommending reducing public exposure to radio frequency radiation, measuring RF radiation levels and replacing Wi-Fi with wireless devices. Resolutions to halt 5G have been passed by Hawaii County, Farragut Tennessee and Easton Connecticut. Cities such as Los Altos, Petaluma, Mill Valley, and San Diego County California have adopted policies to restrict 5G small cells near homes. Oregon passed a Bill to study Wi-Fi health effects.
