Neon bill passes committee hurdle

ISA Smart Brief

On Tuesday, an important Rhode Island state Senate committee voted in favor of SB 2179, a bill to make permanent the exemption of neon lamps from the state's mercury phase-down program. The Committee on Corporations unanimously approved state Sen. Frank DeVall's bill and sent it on to the full Senate for a vote, which should occur sometime over the next week. ISA members Bill Gavigan of the Northeast States Sign Association and Ray Dion of Dion Signs spoke in front of the committee in support of SB 2179, and ISA Director of Government Relations David Hickey answered questions from the committee about how these products are recycled and how they help small businesses have visible and attractive signs. If you have any questions about this issue, please contact David Hickey at david.hickey@signs.org.

I am usually not a fan of The Neon Group but, if they had anything to do with that then I may have to change my view of them

Good work ISA. Banning neon outright would be very short sighted - there have to be exemptions is place for specialty products and projects.

Part two of the May 6 2010 Smarf Brief

Mercury bill passes Rhode Island state Senate

On Tuesday, the Rhode Island state Senate unanimously passed SB 2179, a bill that would make permanent the exemption of neon lamps from the state's mercury phase-down program. ISA has been working with state officials, regulatory agencies, environmental groups and other trade groups to prevent the phase-down of mercury in neon lamps to 10 milligrams, which would render such lighting inoperable. SB 2179 would allow mercury-added neon lamps in Rhode Island to contain 100 milligrams of mercury, which is a more manageable and workable level. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Corporations, where it is awaiting further action. For more information, contact David Hickey at david.hickey@signs.org

Still no credit/mention to the Neon Group for assisting?

UPDATED

Exemption for neon lamps is now official

Efforts to allow the sale and use of neon lighting in Rhode Island recently reached a successful conclusion as SB 2179/HB 7745 was enacted into law in late June. This language creates a permanent exemption for neon lamps from the state's mercury phase-down program. Over the past year, ISA has been working with state officials, regulatory agencies, environmental groups and local sign companies to prevent the phase-down of mercury in neon lamps to 10 milligrams, which would render such lighting inoperable. SB 2179/HB 7745 allows mercury-added neon lamps in Rhode Island to contain 100 milligrams of mercury, which is a more manageable and workable level

Still no credit to The Neon Group though it appears,
