Statement by President Biden on 5G Agreement
Re: 5G Deployment And Radio Altimeters – A Clash Of Industries

Message-ID: <20220122223805.D201276F@telecom2018.csail.mit.edu> Date: Sat, 22 Jan 2022 22:38:05 +0000 (UTC) From: Telecom Digest Moderator <telecomdigestsubmissions@remove-this.telecom2018.csail.mit.edu> Subject: Statement by President Biden on 5G Agreement I want to thank Verizon and AT&T for agreeing to delay 5G deployment around key airports and to continue working with the Department of Transportation on safe 5G deployment at this limited set of locations. This agreement will avoid potentially devastating disruptions to passenger travel, cargo operations, and our economic recovery, while allowing more than 90 percent of wireless tower deployment to occur as scheduled. This agreement protects flight safety and allows aviation operations to continue without significant disruption and will bring more high-speed internet options to millions of Americans. Expanding 5G and promoting competition in internet service are critical priorities of mine, and tomorrow will be a massive step in the right direction. My team has been engaging non-stop with the wireless carriers, airlines, and aviation equipment manufacturers to chart a path forward for 5G deployment and aviation to safely co-exist - and, at my direction, they will continue to do so until we close the remaining gap and reach a permanent, workable solution around these key airports. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/01/18/statement-by-president-biden-on-5g-agreement/

SB 866 builds on existing law, which currently allows minors 12 and over to make choices about their bodies around reproductive healthcare. SB 866 protects the ability of young people to live healthy lives, helps keep schools open and safe, increases vaccination rates, and promotes public health in California. https://sd11.senate.ca.gov/sb866

My question is why did they wait until 5G is about to be deployed rather than speaking up well before now? = Fred
