BILL NUMBER:S1522

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the general municipal law, in relation to prohibiting the
construction of wireless communication facilities within fifteen hundred
feet of school property

PURPOSE: This legislation prohibits the construction
of wireless
communication facilities within fifteen hundred feet of school
property.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The general municipal law is
amended by adding
a new section 99-v to prohibit the construction of wireless
communication facilities within fifteen hundred feet of school
property.

JUSTIFICATION: The towers needed to facilitate cell
phone
communication have caused a great deal of concern. There are numerous
stories detailing the potential negative effects of exposure to the
electromagnetic radiation produced by cellular towers and facilities.
To date, there is not a definitive study on the possible long and
short term effects of radio frequency energy.

In the absence of assured safety of the radio frequency energy, this
legislation would restrict the placement of wireless communication
facilities within fifteen hundred feet of school property and protect
children from potential harm.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.6941 of 2008 (Senate Local
Government
Committee). S.581 of 2009/10 (Senate Local Government Committee).
S.920-A of 2011/12 (Senate Local Government Committee)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
