CTIA Moves to Block San Francisco Cell Ordinance

CTIA The Wireless Association has renewed its fight against an ordinance approved by the city of San Francisco. The proposed law would mandate that cell phone retailers operating in the city limits of San Francisco display signage that provides information regarding cell phones' radiation emissions and spectral absorption rates (SARs). The CTIA has fought the proposal from the beginning, saying it would lead to confusion among consumers. In a statement provided with today's filing, the CTIA said, "The materials the City would require be posted and handed out at retail stores are both alarmist and false. The FCC and FDA have repeatedly found that cell phone use does not pose a danger to human health. The Ordinance recommends such things as turning the phone off when not in use, a suggestion that would render critical emergency communications unavailable to San Francisco residents." The CTIA is asking a federal court to block San Francisco from enforcing the law. It believes the law is barred under the First Amendment and conflicts with federal law governing the safety of wireless devices.
