I would like to thank the Senate Library of Congressional Records for emailing me the transcript I had requested in the above Freedom of Information request.
This where the transcript can be viewed:
Thank you again.
To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Please provide a transcript of police officer testimony at a hearing before the Senate Governmental Affairs Subcommittee, where police officers tell Congress of fears of cancer caused by RADAR (an acronym coined in 1940 by the United States Navy for RAdio Detection And Ranging or RAdio Direction And Ranging), as reported in the Los Angeles Times on August 11, 1992
http://articles.latimes.com/1992-08-11/news/mn-5561_1_traffic-radar-guns. The officers complained the government was not doing enough to warn troopers or to investigate the medical effects of microwave radiation emitted by RADAR.
Please provide all the testimony concerning this matter, including any testimony by Dr. W. Ross Adey, a veterans medical researcher, who stated that the standards established by industry for maximum safe exposure levels are inadequate. Who also stated that microwave emissions of the sort emitted by RADAR "may carry a significant biological and biomedical risk". (Dr. W. Ross Adey was an Associate Chief of Staff for Research and Development at Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center at Loma Linda, Calif.)
Please provide any legislation spawned by the testimony on RADAR microwave emissions and the resulting biological and biomedical effects and hazards.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Helena J. Csorba
