Congress Accepted EPA's Authority to Regulate RF Radiation
May 17, 2013 — Testimony of the EPA's first Administrator, William Ruckelshaus, in 1972 during the Senate Commerce Committee hearings on the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968 clarifies EPA's authority and activities to protect public health and the environment for both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation (emphasis added):
"EPA is conducting a program to protect public health and the quality of the environment from the adverse effects of both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation exposure. This includes developing radiation protection criteria, standards and policies; establishing an environmental assessment program for measuring and controlling ionizing and non-ionizing radiation exposures; to initiate research for radiation-related investigations; and if necessary, determine what protective controls are needed to protect public health from the undesired effects of non-ionizing radiation. " (Emphasis added.)
