1. BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER $$$ WASTED ON RISKY TECHNOLOGY
2. INFERIOR WIRELESS BROADBAND PERFORMANCE COMPARED TO FIBEROPTIC
3. PERSONAL FREEDOM THREATS
4. HEALTH RISKS
If this radiation were a drug, increasing the dose and type would not be allowed without thorough evaluation of safety because like drugs, it can cause changes in the biology of the body. This radiation promotes degenerative diseases and premature aging even at levels of RF/EMR below FCC limits.
The World Health Organization has declared the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones to be "possibly carcinogenic to humans" based on an increased risk of glioma in heavy users.

5. MEDICAL DEVICE MALFUNCTION RISK FROM ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE
6. SAFETY RISKS

Components of Smart Meters are out of compliance with the National Electric Code (NEC) because they trip Ground Fault Interrupters and Arc Fault Interrupters, creating a fire hazard.

7. PRIVACY RISKS
8. CYBERSECURITY RISKS
9. NO ENERGY SAVINGS
10. INCREASED CHARGES TO RATE PAYERS

We are being bullied into accepting smart meters.
Smart meters should not be forced on uninformed people.

Misinformed and uninformed politicians should not be making decisions about smart meters.

My mom received the smart meter a few months ago, her electric bill was 128.00 in January, 200+ in February and has again received another bill for 327.00, she does not use any more electricity than any other time and this didn't happen until the new meter, apparently they can charge anything they want.
