The Carmel City Council approved a resolution Monday asking state lawmakers, the Federal Communications Commission and Congress to limit 5G technology deployment in Indiana until the health effects are fully understood.
The resolution follows several weeks of discussion among Carmel officials and residents, who have expressed concerns about the health and safety implications of the technology.
The resolution passed the council 4-3 with council president Jeff Worrell, Sue Finkam and Kevin Rider voting against it.
