I had no idea.  I had assumed that if the previous occupant had signed
legislation, especially energy-related, that it was just some giveaway
to his (Cheney's) buddies.

Lo and behold, it looks like they managed to  slip in at least one
good provision.


What I don't care for is that they ban incandescents specifically.
IMHO, they should have set a minimum threshold for lumens/watt
regardless of design.

Nonetheless, those old heat sources that leaked a little light will be
gone by 2014 (exceptions excluded, of course).  I suspect that in 5
years, CFLs will be starting to be replaced by LEDs, so my electrical
bill will go down further.
