complaint letters sent to the FCC EB (Enforcement Bureau)
document actual violations, not “potential” violations.
The FCC has had more than a year since December 2011 to act
upon and resolve the violations reported by EMRPI, and to
publicly acknowledge enforcement actions.

in FCC 11-13. If the FCC's proposal passes, citizens will
be denied the right to choose a landline. Existing landlines
should not be replaced with wireless infrastructure. The FCC's
duty is to facilitate communications for the whole country
and for all US citizens. Its new proposal ignores issues of
health, safety, privacy, affordability, reliability and security.

Policy Institute (EMRPI) Petition to Deny FCC approval
of the Verizon Wireless – Alltel merger WT Docket 08-95.
EMRPI argues that the FCC has not addressed the impact of
long-term exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation on human
health. Providing protection for human exposure to potentially
unsafe levels of RF radiation as required by the National
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) will not occur if the FCC
approves this transfer before updating its present obsolete
and inadequate RF safety guidelines. FCC should deny the license
transfer from Alltel to VZW until VZW implements an RF safety
solution that protects the public and all categories of workers
whose workplaces are found near to VZW’s antenna sites.
8, 2008 - The
International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers files letter
with FCC opposing the VZW – Alltel merger until VZW
enacts an RF safety program that protects all workers at its
antenna sites. IBEW represents approximately 750,000 members
who work in every state of the nation and in a wide variety
of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications,
broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government.
