Wildfire Wireless Resiliency Act

This bill exempts from certain environmental or historic preservation review requirements a project that replaces or makes improvements to a communications facility following a governor-declared major disaster or emergency related to a wildfire.

Specifically, the bill exempts these projects from any requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement. These projects are also exempt from considerations about the effect they will have on any historic property.
