I recently heard that the state of Massachusetts among a few others would discontinue selling oil based paint. What!? That's what i thought. So I called the big boxes. Lowes and Home Depot and they confirmed this. Reasons: disposal costs....environmental... This is all disputalble of course and both reps i spoke to could not come up with any further comprehensible explaination other than, "we dont know why, its just the new law 'they' passed". At any rate. I can not find an ounce of news or a single article on the web about this. I called my favorite local paint dealer Kirbys in New Bedford, Mass and they also said it was news to them. So WHO knows the real skinny??
