Senate Bill 2571, were it to become law, would require all cell phones sold or leased by a retailer in Hawaii to “bear a label that warns consumers of the potential dangers of electromagnetic radiation.”

As the bill states, the Legislature finds “that there is increased concern about the long term effect of electromagnetic radiation exposure on children and pregnant women.”

SB 2571, introduced by Sen. Josh Green, has a hearing Monday before Green’s Health Committee the Committee on Technology and the Arts.
