Mercury Task Force

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The Department's Mercury Task Force chaired by the Pollution Prevention Unit met with executive staff to seek formal recognition of the Task Force and to increase their knowledge about the mercury activities of the group. Mercury Task Force activities currently include: 1) the draft Mercury Task Force Report - which outlines current and proposed future program activities; 2) the draft executive order - which proposes to reduce or eliminate the use of mercury and mercury-containing products by State agencies, to appropriately manage existing mercury or mercury-containing products presently owned by State agencies, and to encourage others to do the same: and 3) proposed mercury legislation - which follows the NEWMOA model legislation. Activities are also underway with the Governor's office to review proposed legislative initiatives regarding mercury. As of fall 2003, action on these initiatives looks favorable.
