Cell phone labeling law before supes Monday 

Mayor Gavin Newsom first introduced in January legislation that would require cell phones on display for sale in San Francisco to have signs alerting customers to how much radiation the devices emit. On Tuesday, Newsom introduced a third revision of the bill, which is apparently now ready for prime time: The Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee meets Monday at 1030am at City Hall in Room 263 to vote on the legislation. It would require approval by the full board to become law.

The latest version has a phased approach for when certain requirements become effective. For example, by Feb. 1, 2011, chain-store cell phone retailers must comply with the provision of displaying the radiation levels per device for cell phones on display for sale. The deadline for other cell phone retailers is February 2012.
