Ron Paul, activists push to repeal ban on incandescent bulbs

Feb 09, 2011 - A limited-government group says it's ratcheting up its grass-roots efforts this week to repeal the phaseout of incandescent light bulbs slated to begin next year.

Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and 20 other GOP House members, including Texan Ron Paul, have already proposed a bill to repeal the phaseout. Other proposals are expected this month by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., and Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, according to Freedom Acton, a Web-based group founded in 2009 by political activists at the Center for Competitive Enterprise.

"There is overwhelming public support that spans the political spectrum for repealing the ban on incandescent light bulbs." {continued}
