Dear Chris, Mario, Jim, and ALL PWA MEMBERS!

I am writing this letter to express my most heartfelt appreciation for what you and your organization have provided to Hubble Foundation AGAIN in 2014! We are so excited that you all have been supporting us and we are just absolutely humbled. We are humbled not just by the funds that you were able to raise, but for your generosity of spirit, kind hearts, and your compassion for the telecommunication technicians’ families!

We are continually overwhelmed by your organization! In less than a year, you all have generously donated $16,500!!! You all raised $5,500 just from the Spring Shoot this year! This will go a very long way in scholarships and items and services needed for several of our widows! In addition, you made our representative feel like family, and for that I am so thankful!

Again, I cannot express how incredibly grateful I am that you all support Hubble Foundation in its efforts to care of the families after a fatality in this industry. We are still working towards fruitful change in the industry as well, but we know this will continue to be a long process. Being able to have the support of you and your members makes our ability to care for the families so much easier!

You all have been pioneers as well! Because you all have stepped up to support us, other Wireless Associations are doing so as well! The Carolinas are lined up to call us, and we already have the support of Georgia, California, and possibly Texas!!!!! If you all had not blazed the trail, I believe the support would have further down the road. I believe God knows what we need, when we need it, and He surely places people in our path for His perfect reasons 

I pray that God continues to continually bless each member of PWA and PWA as an organization! You all are in our daily prayers! Thank you for allowing me to serve the industry, and thank you for giving back!

P.S. Ronny and I will be attending your golf tournament this fall, and we can’t wait to see everyone!!!!

Much Love,

Dr. Bridgette Hester, Ph.D.

PA LEGISLATION NEWS

Collocation Bill is signed into law Oct 24th
 
Senate Bill 1345 – Act providing for streamlined procedures for reviewing applications for the modification or collocation of wireless communications facilities and wireless support structures.
 

Legislation Update

The Pennsylvania Wireless Association and PCIA – the Wireless Infrastructure Association have been busy working with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to enact streamlined procedures for the municipal review of the modification and collocation of wireless communication facilities. Specifically, Senate Bill No. 1345, sponsored by Senator Mike Folmer was introduced to the Senate on November 22, 2011 and is currently under review by the Communications and Technology Subcommittee. Additionally House Bill No. 2061, sponsored by Representative Robert W. Godshall was introduced to the House on December 7, 2011 and is currently under review by the Committee on Consumer Affairs.

Jonathan Campbell, Director of Government Affairs for PCIA along with Nick Limberopoulos from Crown Castle and Adrian Berezowsky from IVI Telecom Services, Inc., representing PWA traveled to Harrisburg on Thursday, March 8th, 2012 in order to meet with Fred Sembach, Chief of Staff for Senator Folmer and later with Amanda Rumsey, Counsel for the House Consumer Affairs Committee. The purpose of these meetings was to formally introduce PCIA and PWA to the bill sponsors and to provide preliminary comments and concerns regarding the bills. The main topic of discussion was the recent Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, which includes federal collocation by right language of which neither Mr. Sembach nor Ms. Rumsey was yet aware. PCIA and PWA also suggested the possibility of strengthening the federal legislation through the state version and discussed methods of doing same.

The recent state legislation was proposed only after an extensive study by the Joint Legislative Budget & Finance Committee, titled “Cell Phone Service in Pennsylvania” which was released in November 2008. PCIA & PWA along with various carriers providing service in PA were also consulting parties to this report and were able to provide important industry input. The current bills are scheduled for committee hearings on March 29th (House) and May 2nd (Senate). PCIA and PWA will be testifying along with other industry reps at this time and will continue to assist in the enactment of legislation which will hopefully make the municipal review of modifications and collocations in Pennsylvania less time consuming and costly going forward.
