CFC Supports SB 1212 (Leno) – Cell Phone Radiation Disclosures
Bill Status: SB 1212 is on to its third reading in the State Senate as of June 1, 2010.
CFC Position: Support
Summary: SB 1212 would require retailers of cell phones to make the level or radiation emitted by a phone known to potential purchasers of that phone. It would not require any kind of warning label on cell phones. Rather, it would simply require retailers to disclose cell phone radiation levels at the point-of-sale, and require manufacturers to print this information on the box and in the user guide.
