Will Maine be the first to take legislative action against the long-term health threat posed by cell phones?



Final Vote 2010, The Children's Wireless Protection Act, Maine

Well it was decided by leadership that the minority report be presented for a final vote on the floor in Maine this past Fri. in Maine Results were...

House, 83-62 in favor of killing the bill
Senate, 20 -15 in favor of killing the bill.

In other words nothing passed. However, this is evidently a very close vote for a brand new issue that no one knew very much about except for the awareness that was raised via the hearings and local attention to the bill. The committee did write the CDC a letter asking that more info on this issue of cell phone radiation be linked to their website. Exact wording of the letter I do not have but will let you know once I do. So Maine will be the first state to mandate this from the CDC. But again, I don't have this letter yet.

The legislator who brought bill, Andrea Boland, is re-submitting it for the 2011 session. She just has to get re-elected in the interim. I would comment but being as this is a non profit, we are strictly prohibited from advocating for any political candidates.

During this time, we have been contacted by other states who see Maine as we do...a huge awareness raising event which only brought us closer to our eminent success in getting a warning label on cell phones.

We have received numerous requests to post the hearings on the website and will be doing so soon. Hopefully they will aide in your bringing this bill or others like it to your own state or country.

We are also currently moving forward with warning labels on cell phones at the federal level. A group of us will be in DC in the month of May for National Brain Tumor Awareness Week, (approx. May 4th - May 11th) lobbying Congress. There may be a language change in the bill due to our experience in Maine. I will send it out to you all once it is finalized, but ultimately it will be up to whichever legislator picks the bill up and authors it, to decide upon exact language of the bill.

Anyone who wants to help out in DC please let us know. We really could use the help even if you can't personally make it. Just you setting up meetings with your representatives for us to take while we are there would be enormously helpful. They respond to their constituents and that is what something like this is going to take. So please let us know if you can either join us in DC or if you can set up a meeting for us with your Congressman or Senator.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support. We need it now more than ever.
