Wisconsin e-Scrap Bill Passes Senate
Senate Bill 107 passed the out of the Wisconsin State Senate by a vote of 23-to-10, now moving on to the State Assembly for consideration. The bill sets up a sales-weight-based extended responsibility program for unwanted electronics devices for the Badger State, covering laptop and desktop computers, consumer video display devices of at least four inches diagonal measurement and printers.
If passed, the law would go into effect on September 1, 2009. The bill also includes a landfill ban on covered electronic devices.
