Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Speaker, I would like to add to my other remarks about S. 906, the ``Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008.'' The prohibitions pertaining to conveyances, sales, or distribution by Federal agencies contained in Section 3 and the prohibition on exports in Section 4 of S. 906 apply to ``elemental mercury.'' As the principal sponsor of this legislation in the House of Representatives I wish to reaffirm the legislative history and my clear intent that the term ``elemental mercury'' as used in the bill does not apply to articles, manufactured consumer products, or other products that contain elemental mercury.
