Counties, Cities Voice Concern Over FCC's Small Cell Ruling
NLC Press Release
2017 Governor's Point of Light Recipients
Washington - The National Association of Counties and the National League of Cities today released the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) vote on the Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order on state and local governance of small cell wireless infrastructure deployment.

"Cities and counties are strongly committed to the timely and successful deployment of 5G facilities and services throughout the nation, just as we led and supported public and private partnerships that resulted in the successful introduction and expansion of 4G infrastructure and services.

"Today's vote, however, overlooks significant concerns from the nation's cities and counties. Over 100 local governments from 22 states filed comments in opposition to the proposed ruling during the FCC's comment period.

"The FCC's impractical actions will significantly impede local governments' ability to serve as trustees of public property, safety and well-being. The decision will transfer significant local public resources to private companies, without securing any guarantee of public benefit in return.
"Counties and cities are the stewards of substantial amounts of public rights-of-way, which many telecommunications providers use to construct their own communications networks. By narrowing the window and resources for evaluating small cell applications, the FCC is effectively hindering our ability to fulfill public health and safety responsibilities during the construction and modification of broadcasting facilities.  

"Local governments share the FCC's goal of ensuring affordable broadband access for every American, regardless of their income level or address. However, today's vote applies a one-size-fits-all approach to broadband deployment that simply will not work in the vast majority of cities and counties across the country.
"With this ruling, the FCC is overlooking its overall goals to 'build on the commonsense reforms adopted in state legislatures and town councils across the country.' 

"Local governments share the FCC's urgency; however, this ruling promises to force local governments to rubber-stamp small cell applications or face crippling legal recourse from providers racing to corner the 5G communications market. 

"We urge the FCC to delay the rule, and we plan to support local effort to mitigate its impacts."

On Capitol Hill, Mayors Urge Greater Federal Support to Combat Nation's Opioid Crisis
NLC Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - October 10, 2018 -  National League of Cities (NLC) held a briefing on Capitol Hill, three mayors from diverse communities around the country described steps they are taking to combat the opioid epidemic in their cities and the partnership they need from federal leaders. Gary, Indiana Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, NLC's first vice president, was joined by Huntington, West Virginia Mayor Steve Williams and Knoxville, Tennessee Mayor Madeline Rogero at the briefing, which was opened by West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin.

"The opioid crisis will not go away on its own. As elected officials, we must take action so that our cities can continue to be the foundation of our country, and that action must come from a coordinated effort involving every level of government," said National League of Cities (NLC) First Vice President Karen Freeman-Wilson, mayor of Gary, Indiana. "If funding continues to stall at the state and federal levels instead of being fully dispersed to America's most affected cities, we are just treading water."

The briefing follows Congressional passage of the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, a comprehensive bipartisan effort to improve the way our nation combats the opioid crisis. At the briefing, local leaders said that while this federal legislation was a nice step, it simply did not go far enough. Local governments have been developing programs to address substance abuse disorders in their communities, but many cities and local elected officials feel that they alone lack the tools and resources to produce a long-lasting response.

"As mayors, we are at the center of the opioid epidemic and we play a critical role in connecting the dots between community services and those who need help," said Steve Williams, mayor of Huntington, West Virginia. "In Huntington, we have developed a holistic approach that brings all of our community's resources to the table. However, this approach also requires partnerships at the federal level. That means increasing federal funding to combat this scourge and cutting a clearer path for cities to access that funding."

"The impact of the opioid epidemic cannot be understated," said Madeline Rogero, mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee. "Our federal, state and local leaders must work alongside local prevention organizations to address substance misuse. Cities and local communities are on the front line and must remain hopeful and innovative."

NLC hosted a Mayors' Institute on opioids in May and released a report emphasizing state and local strategies to address and mitigate this crisis. Next month, thousands of city leaders will gather in Los Angeles, California, for NLC's annual City Summit conference, which will feature several working sessions exploring policies and programs to mitigate the spread of the opioid epidemic.
