The Rhode Island fluorescent ban was signed by the Governor on June 22, 2023. After Jan. 1, 2024, it will be illegal to sell most compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) in Rhode Island. A year later, the sale of pin-based and linear fluorescent bulbs will become illegal. More information on Rhode Island’s ban is here.

The Maine ban became law on July 5th without the Governor’s signature. Starting in 2026, sales of new fluorescent lamps will be banned. It includes linear fluorescent lamps and CFLs. More information on Maine’s ban is here.
