Upton's Light Bulb Ban

Deroy Murdock's column discusses Congress' impending ban on light bulbs.

The All-American Light Bulb Dims

You know who championed that bill in Congress? Fred Upton.

20. Energy Policy HR 3221 (Roll Call 832). The House passed legislation regulating lights and appliances (including a ban on the incandescent light bulb), creating new programs for alternative energy sources, imposing more regulations on energy companies and mandating vastly increased use of “renewable” energy. ACU opposed this extension of governmental authority over the economy, but it was adopted August 4, 2007 by a vote of 241-172.TOP
