Cell phone labeling proposal before supes 

Mayor Gavin Newsom’s proposed legislation to require point-of-sale disclosure of how much radiation a cell phone emits was continued at the Board of Supervisors’ last meeting. On Tuesday, the board is scheduled to vote on the legislation.

The proposal appears headed toward approval, but is facing opposition from cell phone companies, which seemingly contributed to the postponement.

The proposal is meant to provide consumers with more information about potential health risks associated with cell phone usage, which remains a hotly debated topic.

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday at 2 p.m. at City Hall in Room 250.
