Legislative Hearing re Cell Phone Towers on School Grounds

Date/Time:Feb 21, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Cell Phone Towers on School Property?  NO!  Representative Karla Drenner (D) is preparing to introduce legislation that would prohibit cell phone towers from being placed on school property.  There is already work underway to place one of these towers on an Atlanta school's grounds, and the public needs to speak up against this use of our children's schools by corporations for the dangerous towers.  The purpose of this hearing is for public comment, so spread the word to friends and neighbors. 

Do not forget that you will need your photo ID to enter the bulding through security guards.  When you exit the double elevators on the fourth floor of the CLOB, turn left.  The hearing room is at the end of the hall (restrooms are to the right of the double elevators, as you exit them).  Let's try to have a good turnout to show support for protecting our public school properties.
