Hawaii And Colorado Are About To Ban Fluorescent Lamps

Hawaii And Colorado Are About To Ban Fluorescent Lamps

Two more states are joining Vermont and California in banning fluorescent lamps. Hawaii’s legislature passed HB 192 / SB 690, and sent it to the Governor’s desk for signing, which is expected. The bill, once signed, will phase out mercury-containing lamps, such as fluorescent lamps.

Colorado’s House Bill 23-1161, called Environmental Standards For Appliances, passed the state’s Senate on May 1, and Governor Jared Polis has indicated he will sign it into law. The bill states, “On and after January 1, 2025, a person shall not manufacture, distribute, sell, or offer for sale in Colorado any linear florescent lamp or compact fluorescent lamp.”

Meanwhile, similar legislation is still under consideration in Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, and Oregon.
