Rep. Jane Harmon [D-CA], whom I always vote against, has introduced legislation to prohibit the sale of certain inefficient light bulbs, and require the development of a plan for increasing the use of more efficient light bulbs by consumers and businesses.
The bill, HR 1547 includes the following:
Not later than 6 months after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Energy shall transmit to the Congress a plan for encouraging and providing incentives for the use of more efficient light bulbs by consumers and businesses.
There’s already a bill pending in California, welcome to 21st century socialism, American style. What next, brigades of Cuban social workers sent to change our bulbs?
Are the fluorescent bulbs safe? Expect more legislation.
