Are we being overexposed to radiation?

San Francisco

Mayor Gavin Newsom's proposed legislation requiring cell phone retailers in San Francisco to disclose Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values for radiation emitted by the cell phones they sell passed out of the City Operations & Neighborhood Services Committee after a hearing today. Supervisors Carmen Chu and John Avalos voted to send it to the full Board with a recommendation in favor of its passage, while Supervisor Sean Elsbernd voted no.

There was significant opposition to the legislation from the San Francisco small business community and the San Francisco Small Business Commission voted against taking legislative action in April. The wireless industry's most powerful lobbying organization, CTIA, was also on hand to speak against the legislation.

However, Supervisor Chu, who was the swing vote on this particular Committee, ultimately voted in favor after her concerns about the costs involved and the burdens on small businesses were addressed to her satisfaction.

To read the legislation in its current form, which calls for a gradual roll-out commencing later this year, go to the following link:
