Small Cell Regulation Bill Advances

Yesterday, the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee advanced with amendments, A-1116. The purpose of this legislation is to provide for uniform regulation of small wireless facility deployment in the State and attempts to mirror and in some cases goes beyond current federal law.

While initially opposed to the legislation as introduced, the League remained neutral at yesterday’s hearing after amendments were made that take into consideration a number of the League’s concerns. These amendments were the result of numerous meetings between a coalition of wireless service providers and the League and NJ Conference of Mayors.

Make no mistake, A-1116 is not perfect and much work remains to ensure municipal concerns are appropriately addressed. We are hopeful that with the guidance of Assemblywoman Murphy, who sponsors A-1116, that we can continue to work with all stakeholders to develop a fair and rational bill.

For more information on A-1116 and an overview of the underlying matter of small cell deployment please see the League’s recent blog post.
