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.
It was a Democrat who introduced the bill, it was an Bi-partisan committee who endorsed/supported the bill, and of course George W signed it.
