CUMULATIVE NUMBER OF COUNTRIES / STATES / PROVINCES ENACTING RPS/QUOTA POLICIES 1 “Cumulative” refers to the number of jurisdictions that had enacted RPS/Quota policies as of the given year. Jurisdictions are listed under the year of first policy enactment. Many policies shown have been revised or renewed in subsequent years, and some policies shown may have been repealed or lapsed. 2 Ohio’s RPS policy was put on hold in 2014. It has not been officially revoked. 3 “Total” adds 40 jurisdictions believed to have RPS/Quota policies but whose year of enactment is not known (Belarus, Ghana, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Palau, Peru, Portugal, Senegal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, the Indian states of Arunchal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand, Kerala, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Tripura, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal and the Indian Union Territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, Delhi, Lakshadweep, and Puducherry) and excludes Italy, which phased out its RPS in 2012. In the United States, there are 10 additional states and territories with policy goals that are not legally binding RPS policies (Guam, Indiana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, U.S. Virgin Islands, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia). West Virginia’s non-binding goal was repealed in 2015. Three additional Canadian provinces also have non-binding policy goals (Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec).
