Granted, George Bush signed it, but he was too liberal for me most of the time anyway.

BTW, they recommend you allow the CFL bulbs to burn for a minimum of 15 minutes. O/W, their life expectancy approaches that of incandescent bulbs. Please remember that tomorrow morning when you are getting your clothes out of your closet.
I thought it was a co other bill by Fred Upton (R) and Jane Harman (D). I also thought Upton has been trying to get a bill together to reverse the ban.
