Mercury in Vermont

Sign Builder has an item (2/07 p.8) about a new Vermont law banning sale of mercury-added lamps as of 1/1/07. (Even though they call it 'neon'.)

A direct quote from the state's web site about the exemption of repairing existing signs;

"A manufacturer may wish to require their customer to obtain written approval from the Department in order to confirm the date that the equipment was placed in use and identify their efforts to locate a non-mercury replacement part, to verify the legal sale of the mercury-added replacement part in the State of Vermont."

Hope this is not a 'sign' of things to come.

Does that mean I can only use clear red soon? I wonder if they will figure out there is no mercury in red neon.
