School wireless safety bill passes state senate

Today the Oregon State Senate passed, by a unanimous vote, SB283.

Posted: Jun 13, 2019 11:43 PM

Today, June 13, 2019, the Oregon State Senate passed SB 283, which directs the Oregon Health Authority to review independently-funded scientific studies of the health effects of exposure to microwave radiation, particularly exposure that results from use of wireless network technologies in schools.

The bill also directs the Oregon Department of Education to develop recommendations to schools in this state for practices and alternative technologies that reduce students’ exposure to microwave radiation that Oregon Health Authority report identifies as harmful.

The bill is expected to also pass in the House, following compelling testimony from the Chair of the Health Committee, Sen. Laurie Monnes-Anderson. Monnes-Anderson has championed this issue for many years while facing ridicule and disrespect from other legislators.

The issue has come to the fore as reports of cancer clusters in schools near cell towers and using wireless microwave technology, as faculty and students increasingly report being stricken with microwave sickness in schools, at alarming rates.
