Dear Mr. French:
I am writing regarding the Dispossessed outreach Project's
plans to seek
assistance from the Arizona Department of Commerce to develop
for people with multiple chemical sensitivities and electrical
sensitivities in West Yavapai County. The Access Board is
Agency whose mission is to promote accessibility for people
We develop accessibility guidelines for the built environment,
vehicles, and telecommunications equipment, and standards
and information technology. Our guidelines are adopted by
agencies as enforceable standards under the Americans with
Act, Architectural Barriers Act, and Telecommunications Act.
enforce accessibility standards for federally funded facilities.
Over the years, the Access Board has learned about the very
needs of people with multiple chemical sensitivities and electrical
sensitivities. We have heard from thousands of people across
who are sensitized to chemicals and electromagnetic, radio,
phone emissions and who cannot safely use facilities because
chemicals released from building materials and furnishings,
certain types of electrical equipment and systems, and cleaning
and pesticides commonly used in operating and maintaining
The Access Board is initiating a major project to examine
the needs of
people with multiple chemical sensitivities and electrical
as they relate to indoor environmental quality, and to develop
plan to address those needs.
We will be involving people with multiple chemical sensitivities
electrical sensitivities, the building industry, and other
agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, in
We also are developing technical assistance materials that
will focus on
best practices for addressing the needs of this population.
Based on our experience. I can state that there definitely
is a need for
specially planned and designed housing for people with multiple
sensitivities and electrical sensitivities. There are many
these and related disabilities whose condition is so severe

We recently visited Ecology House, an 11-unit apartment development
San Rafael, California, talked with its residents, and learned
hand about the special design and construction practices that
the project habitable for people who could not tolerate other
The housing project being planned by The Dispossessed Outreach
would build on the experiences of Ecology House and meet a

healthy and affordable housing by people who have no other

Hi Klaus: This brief article on the U.S. military and defense

"FCC's laws" - the FCC has enacted "guidelines"
which are not laws. The tables Radi is looking for can be
found in OET
Bulletin 65 which can be found at www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety
If you think "guidelines" are "regulations"
just ask a hospital
administrator if a guideline can be enforced. Guidelines are
suggestions. If the FCC failed in its congressional mandate,
be a cloud over the State restrictions which has not yet been
scrutinized by the courts. The word "guidelines"
appears in the
introduction of Bulletin 65 a total of six times. The title
"Evaluating Compliance With FCC Guidelines For Human
Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields."
There is an important point here. In the TCA, congress directed
within 180 days after the enactment of the TCA to prescribe
effective "rules" regarding the environmental effects
of radio frequency
"emissions" and upon doing so, no State, local government
instrumentality thereof could "regulate" a facility
on the basis of the
environmental effects of radio frequency "emissions".
Unless I miss my guess, the planning commission has no regulatory
authority anyway. It is making a "decision" on one
application - not
enacting what's good for the goose regulations that will be
all applications (an ordinance). A "decision" is
not a "regulation".
The FCC environmental guidelines are written in terms of
on human "exposure" to RF fields for specific time
and "emissions" are two enirely different matters
meanings), just as "decision" and "regulation"
are not identical in
meaning. The FCC guidelines do not limit the maximum levels
energy. They only limit the amount of time that an indvidual
in fields above prescribed levels. See 47 CFR Section 1.1310.
The FCC was created by, and is subservient to Congress. Even
if, as it
did with the open video services, Congress specifies a very
period for the FCC to act, the FCC still has no option but
to obey -
even if the time period is unreasonable.
In my opinion, the FCC has failed to comply with the statutory
And, as a result of that, I do not believe that any of the
provisions of the federal statute can be applied in any situation.
