The article reports that the Electronic Industry Alliance continued its push for a national electronics recycling plan, urging the U.S. Congress to provide one federal solution for all 50 states. The framework of the EIA relies solely on service providers and focuses on household televisions (TVs) and information technology (IT) products, such as computers and computer monitors. The framework calls for a bifurcated financing approach, separating TVs from computer equipment.
