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,

    • make that 2 legs & i love it!
    • At 68 and still installing part time for other companies. We are in the same boat, companies having problems finding good help. One problem is that employees need benefits, can't raise a family with out them. Surprised how many employers do not offer this and also underpay. When some employers get an experienced employee the tend to jam the long hours to them. So guys like others do not. In my case I worked out of town last week and put in 62 hrs in 4 days and the guy I am helping out was pissed when I didn't want work the Friday.  I ran my ran my own company for 44 yrs, from my experience a lot of companies do not have a company policy that is review and signed with new employees, I find a lot of employers their communication skills suck, resulting in new and old employees screwing up, and tend to slam the work at their people. When my employees were acquiring a huge amount of overtime, it was time to put another crew on the road. For our Royal Bank in Canada, I have mentored many business, not too many in the sign business, but finding good reliable help is every ones problem. I tell it how it is during the hiring process, and encouraged my employees to vocal their problems with me without the risk of being fired. I don't know with I am an expert, but when i retired I ha 3 employees with 20 plus years and 1 with 30yrs.  And sure if found a good employee who was willing to learn, we taught them, but also rewarded them with bonus's and gift cards. I figure it takes a good 2 yrs or better to train some one and a sure loss if you lose them to your competitor. Thanks for letting me ramble on.
    • Just my personality showing thru!  Some old Grey farts still appreciate craftsmanship! 
    • Gary;   I think you and the other posters are being way too harsh and just not showing appreciation of the Creativity of this repair and the one listed by my friend Angie.   These are the times we currently find ourselves navigating...........   Peace out  
    • PK HOUSINGS   PK, or Neon P-K Housings are harder and harder to find these days with no major Neon Manufacturer still producing the Metal Shroud portion of a PK Housing.  Westrim??  Nope....Transco?  Nope....Allanson?  Nope...    In fact, it's been nearly impossible to find New complete PK Housings.    The only way in the last couple of years if you had a Neon Project for a client has been to find existing stock from a sign company that has had some just sitting on a old dusty shelf somewhere, or possibly a sign supplier who didn't even know they had any, and with LEDs flooding the market it's doubtful a supplier rep even knows what they are/were, and that dusty case they do have with all those strange metal & glass components was possibly spare parts for some old delivery truck their company use to have from the 90's???      Think of how many have just been straight thrown out in the garbage   Well, not every Neon wall project calls for #200, #300 Housings, the difficult Masters Technologies Boots and Sleeving System.  If you want a Neon attached to on a wall for a clean look & without a raceway, YES...it IS still possible!!!   We've been sitting on these for some time, sorry for the late public announcement   Store Link of Neon Housings http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/8-neon-housing-components/       Call or Email us for questions or orders!!  orders@thesignsyndicate   (858) 880-1400
