[GreenYes] Michigan bans the sale of most mercury thermometers
Michigan has adopted a law to ban the sale of most mercury thermometers,
effective January 1, 2003. This law, similar to a law adopted in Minnesota,
was overwhelming supported in both houses of the Michigan legislature, and
was signed into law by Governor Engler on October 3rd. Now referred to as
Public Act 578 of 2002, a copy can be found on the Internet at
http://www.michiganlegislature.org/documents/2001-2002/publicact/pdf/2002-PA
-0578.pdf

throughout the US, please do not hesitate to contact me.
