[greenyes] Gross error in AP story re: electronics recycling
Hi folks. In case you happen upon this AP story, which originated out of
the Fort Worth Star Telegram
 
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story
<http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20031229/ap_on_hi_te/
tech_recycling_1&cid=562&ncid=1730>
&u=/ap/20031229/ap_on_hi_te/tech_recycling_1&cid=562&ncid=1730
 
you will note the following incorrect paragraph:
 
"Bush also signed the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003, which
directs companies on the disposal of used electronic equipment such as
computers, copiers and fax machines."
 
The bill referred to is California's SB 20 that was passed and signed
into law by former Governor Gray Davis. No federal legislation was
passed let alone signed into law by President Bush.
 
Happy New Year from GRRN and the Computer TakeBack Campaign.
