Status of SC House Bill H4262 and Senate Bill S638
These are two 5G Deployment bills, which both strip away local government power regarding the details of 5G deployment in their towns and cities and essentially giving the telecom companies power to install towers and antennae with free reign. Because of COVID closures, we assume they will be re-introduced this fall at the beginning of the next two-year legislative session.
With a combination of efforts across South Carolina, we have some experience fighting H4262 and have compiled resources to help make fighting these bills a little easier. Let's put this to work. We need you, the constituent and advocate, to get familiar with your House representative and Senator over the course of this spring and summer 2020.
Please see our Take Action section for state government contact information and sample email and voicemail scripts. Tell House Reps no on H4262 and Senators no on S638! Keep the decision making power for 5G deployment in the hands of the local governments, not the wireless telecom industry.
