President Obama issued a presidential proclomation on electronics stewardship on 15 November 2010, announcing that he was creating an Interagency Task Force of agencies within the federal government “to prepare a national strategy for responsible electronics stewardship, including improvements to Federal procedures for managing electronic products.” He also said he wanted “to ensure the Federal Government leads as a responsible consumer.” Publication of the Task Force Report has been delayed twice.

We will have to see how the proposed bill fares and what this committee recommends.
