Greg Rapisarda, a partner in Saul Ewing’s Telecommunications Practice, is quoted in this article about how a section on wireless facilities in the 2012 Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act has affected zoning approvals for telecommunications towers.  He explains that local governments are required under the law to approve modifications to existing structures so long as there is no substantial change in the structure.

"Section 6409 has helped us obtain dozens of approvals, and avoid litigation, just by educating and working with the local jurisdictions on the content of the new law," Rapisarda said in the article.
