The following is from Kevin Mottus:
Mobile Now Act and The Digit Bill have passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee and are headed to the full senate for a vote. They will probably be heard in the next week or two.
Have all your people call every senator's office now. If they feel strongly have them come to Washington DC and do it in person. There are only 100 senators. Tell them to ask for the Chief of Staff then the Legislative Director. If you do not talk to them then leave a message on voicemail and send an email to the Legislative Director and Chief of Staff. The email addresses in the senate are a set format: First name Underscore Last Name@SenatorsLastName.senate.g
Go to your Senators local office and talk to the director there and ask them to block these bills.
Ask them to Vote NO on Mobile Now Act S.19 and Vote NO on Digit Act S.88.
After you have talked with them yourself, you can ask for a meeting for me (Kevin Mottus) and the staffer to provide more information. You can set up an appointment for me and be on the phone or not whatever is comfortable for you. I will likely meet with them with an expert on the phone. Email me at Keephealthyfamilies@gmail.c
Bill Info: These bills lay the foundation for the Internet of Things that will require a small cell tower transmitter every couple of homesemitting high frequency 24Ghz to 90Ghz which has never been tested for non-thermal biological effects. These transmitters will be put in public right of ways with NO ability to consider health and safety. The transmitters will be ugly, decrease property values, and expose occupants to harmful wireless radiation so basically your appliances can communicate with one another which does not seem like a necessity and your privacy can be violated even more easily.

S88 the DIGIT Bill "To ensure appropriate spectrum planning and interagency coordination to support the Internet of Things." Is just as bad if not worse than the Mobile Now Act. It is basically written to develop a working group that will determine how to make the Internet of Things Happen e.g. regulations standing in the way, budget, how to use internet of things in government. The working group will be made up of NTIA, NIST, FCC, FTC, Office of Science and Technology Policy, Department of Energy, Industry and other stakeholders
(A) the identification of any Federal regulations, statutes, grant practices, programs, budgetary or jurisdictional challenges, and other sector-specific policies that are inhibiting or could inhibit the development of the Internet of Things;
(B) whether adequate spectrum is available to support the growing Internet of Things and what legal or regulatory barriers may exist to providing any spectrum needed in the future;
