Republican Hypocrisy: The "Hits" to Local Control Just Keep on Coming

Municipalities lose control over cell tower location.  (WBAY, 2/27/2014)

One of those policy-item thingies that got inserted into the state budget.   When the state budget was signed into law last July, it changed the way cell phone towers are regulated. 

The budget established a set of State rules for cell tower permits all municipalities must follow. It prevents cities from setting their own rules on everything from environmental testing, to aesthetics, to lighting.
