"Focus: Environment" piece on anti-mercury legislation, noting that in April Mai
"Focus: Environment" piece on anti-mercury legislation, noting that in April Maine passed a landmark bill requiring manufacturers of mercury-containing thermostats to take financial responsibility for the collection and recycling of the products. The thermostat bill was developed by working with the industry, rather than against it. Matt Prindiville of the Natural Resources Council of Maine said Maine has passed so many bills, addressing nearly every in-state form of pollution, that there may not be much more anti-mercury activists can do. State efforts can control only so much, as 85 - 90 percent of mercury pollution here is drifting in from out of state. With comments by Michael Bellivue, executive director of the Environmental Health Strategy Center; John Ingerson of Freeport Auto Parts; and Sen. Scott Cowger, D-Hallowell.
