Too bad CNN wasn't able to post a link to the text of the proposed
law - that would have been quite a bit more informative...
Assemblyman Levine and his staff have surely researched the issue
carefully, discussed the matter with constituants, and have reached
consensus that CF bulbs will be acceptable substitutes for use in
restaurants and clubs; film studios and theaters; aviation (imagine
LAX with CF beacon, approach and runway lights with CF landing lights
on all planes; and police helicopters with CF searchlights), highway
(including traffic control, signage, street lighting, and emergency
vehicles), rail, and ocean transportation; medical facilities and
...and surely Lloyd and all the members of his intelligent and
well-informed staff are "leading by example" and have already replaced
all of the incandescent bulbs in their offices and residences
(including those in their kitchen appliances and personal vehicles)
with CF bulbs.
I do find myself wondering how well the CF bulbs substitute for the
incandescent bulbs in cook tops and freezers...
