Congress to vote to repeal incandescent bulb ban

Bob the Super Hamste (1152367) writes | more than 3 years ago

Politics 1

Bob the Super Hamste (1152367) writes "CNN Money is running as story about a bill Congress is going to vote today to repeal the "incandescent light bulb ban" that was put into place during the Bush administration. The bill is supported by Republicans in congress who are claiming this places unnecessary restrictions on the market. For those of you wondering it does bring up the standard issues of energy efficiency, mercury (in both the bulbs and that emitted by coal power), and cost of the bulbs. The bill was introduced by Texas Congressman Joe Barton."
