FRED UPTON ADMITS HE SCREWED UP ON LIGHT BULBS:

“It was never my goal for Washington to decide what type of light bulbs Americans should use,” Upton said in a statement to The Hill. “The public response on this issue is a clear signal that markets – not governments – should be driving technological advancements. I will join my colleagues to vote yes on a bill to protect consumer choice and guard against federal overreach.”

The bill Barton introduced Wednesday would repeal the light bulb efficiency law.

Upton says he’ll support a repeal of the ban now. Will it pass? If you trust him, there’s no need to stock up on incandescent bulbs.
