“I’m from the government and I will change your lightbulb”

Finally some encouraging news on the compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) front.

Three Representatives have introduced H.R.6144 which would repeal the ban on incandescent bulbs.
Our website,   http://www.cflimpact.com/ has a news story on the bill.  It is interesting to note that one of the sponsors is an M.D. from Texas.

Rep. Joe Barton, also from Texas, has a story about the bill on his website:

While (MI) Sen. Levin’s office took a “shot” at discussing this with the EPA, the EPA just “stiffed” them with a non-responsive “response”.

With the likelihood of a major change in the makeup of the House of Representatives the multitudes, who are adversely impacted by CFLs, may just find some Hope for Change in this ill-conceived ban on incandescent bulbs.

Dr. Weeks’ Comment:    We have advocated against CFL since the start.  See the following links:
