#GOPFAIL? Despite GOP opposition, light bulb standards will phase in on Jan. 1. “New light bulb efficiency standards will begin phasing in on Jan. 1 despite intense opposition from conservatives, who have blasted the rules as a textbook unnecessary federal regulation. While Republicans secured inclusion of a measure blocking funding for enforcement of the standards in a year-end spending bill, energy efficiency groups say the provision will have little practical impact. The Energy Department rules will nonetheless go into effect at the start of 2012.”
Well, it’s not (quite) too late to stock up! (Bumped).
