AB2395 - California Landline Killing Bill Stopped with Your Help!
USA Created: 10 Jul 2016
In May, a large and diverse coalition of people and organizations in California came together to defeat AB 2395, a bill sponsored by AT&T that would have allowed the telecom giant to dissolve landline systems in the state at will, starting Jan 1st, 2020.

The bill was held in the Appropriations Committee, after a barrage of landline calls to the capitol, sustained pressure from organized labor groups including the unions, seniors, rural counties as well as physicians who warned of serious public health costs and emergency response problems.

A few weeks later, an outraged public weighed in again on AB2788, a bill that would have destroyed local governments ability to regulate cell towers and other wireless devices. The threat to our landline systems remains a serious one, as telecom companies attempt to dismantle landlines around the country, and force 5G everywhere. People have a right to safe, reliable infrastructure and this is being eroded. Read what Verizon has been doing to elderly residents of this NYC neighborhood!
