Action Needed! Small Wireless Facilities Act of Illinois
As you may know, the Small Wireless Facilities Act of Illinois (SWFDA) is set to end June 1, 2021! If it sunsets, or amended, it will have significant and costly effects on the way our industry does business in Illinois! There are many bills being debated right now in Springfield. There is only one bill that the industry currently endorses: HB2379. HB2379 simply extends the current law, as written, for another 5 years. There are many opponents to this bill (352), and it needs YOUR help!
The first public hearing on all the bills is this coming Monday, March 22nd. We need you to show your support for this bill. Please file two witness slips showing your support of HB2379 (one slip in the committee, another at the sub-committee level). Simply click on the links and follow the instructions. PLEASE DO THIS BY MONDAY MORNING!
LET THE LEGISLATORS KNOW WHERE YOU STAND! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
As your regulatory person at ILSWA, please feel free to contact me at any time this weekend if you have any questions or problems filling out the slips.
