Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to expand and improve mobile broadband coverage and connectivity, promote robust wireless communication services, enhance economic development, enhance public safety, and improve quality of life for all residents and businesses throughout the commonwealth by establishing uniform standards and expedited permitting for collocation of wireless facilities on existing structures, therefore, it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
