Only Governor Nixon can stop new telecommunications bill

Cell-Tower-348x196

The only way to stop telecommunications bill SB 650 is to have Gov. Jay Nixon veto the bill and that is exactly what the Missouri Municipal League is asking for. In a statement issued Monday the MML expressed disappointment that the wireless legislation was approved, saying that basic local land use and zoning protections for residents will be removed if Governor Nixon signs the bill. Osage beach, Lake Ozark, Sunrise Beach and other communities around the lake joined forces several weeks ago to oppose the bill and provided testimony before House and Senate subcommittees, and at a Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments meeting attended by the Lake’s three representatives. City officials from each community, among others around the state, are alarmed that if the bill is signed by Governor Nixon cities will lose their ability to locate placement and management of cell towers within their communities.
