CESNational Conference of State Legislatures 2006 : This week, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) will participate in the National Conference of State Legislatures 2006 Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee. With a focus on issues such as energy efficiency and intellectual property, CEA representatives will meet with state policymakers to promote public policy solutions that protect innovation, preserve consumer choice and promote growth in the vibrant consumer technology sector. On Tuesday, August 15th, Douglas Johnson, CEA's senior director of technology will participate in "Energy Efficiency and the Electronics Industry," a panel discussion that will explore the electronics industry's efforts to address energy consumption.

Additionally, on Wednesday, August 16th, Veronica O'Connell, CEA's senior director of government affairs, will be part of a panel sponsored by NCSL's Communications, Technology & Inter-state Commerce Committee entitled, "Copyright and Theft in the Digital Age". "This year's NCSL conference presents an opportunity to highlight and discuss issues of common interest to state policy makers and the high tech industry, including energy efficiency and intellectual property," Johnson said.

Consumer electronics - Energy efficiency
Consumer electronics use only a small fraction of energy in the home. Regardless, the consumer electronics industry is dedicated to the design, production and marketing of energy-efficient products that provide consumers with a range of product features at competitive prices. CEA is committed to working with state governments and other stakeholders in developing balanced approaches to energy consumption issues. CEA is opposed to government-mandated standards that reduce consumer choice, limit product offerings and stifle innovation. E-waste and Electronics Recycling: CEA is committed to finding a common-sense, national approach to the e-waste challenge, which will provide certainty and consistency for manufacturers, retailers, consumers and governments alike. CEA believes that the emerging patchwork of state initiatives will place unnecessary burdens on technology companies, retailers and consumers alike.

CEA - Licensing & Regulation of Home Electronic Systems
CEA believes that the licensing and regulation of home electronic systems integrators and installers should be conducted in a consistent and equitable fashion. In some states, legislative proposals have favored organized labor and made it difficult for independent installers and other companies to compete. CEA and other organizations are concerned about the impact of such legislation on consumers, local businesses and qualified home systems installers. A growing number of businesses and organizations are competing to meet consumer demand for entertainment, security, automation and networking systems in the home.

CEA - In-vehicle electronics & Driver focus
CEA believes action to address concerns over in-vehicle electronics and driver focus should continue through research, comprehensive public education campaigns, and enforcement of existing negligent and reckless driving laws. Regarding in-vehicle video displays, CEA supports model legislation that encourages a consistent regulatory approach across the 50 states, which benefits consumers, industry and the law enforcement community.
