Land Use & Planning
AB 57 (Quirk) – Oppose 
As amended on August 18, 2015

Assembly Bill 57, by Assembly Member Bill Quirk, would deem approved any application for co-location or siting of a new wireless telecommunications facility if a city or county fails to approve or disapprove the application within time periods that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established for co-location and siting applications. Under the FCC rule, local governments were given 90 days to respond to co-location applications and 150 days for siting applications. Unlike AB 57, the FCC’s 90/150-day rule only provided wireless telecommunications carriers with a rebuttable presumption to be used in court if a local agency failed to act in a timely manner.
