A bill to repeal the incandescent Light Bulb Ban will be coming up in July. Tell your Representative that if they wish to create jobs and have American workers compete, that this bill needs to be passed, At a time when the EPA is BANNING COAL from Power Plants because of Mercury contamination , they are allowing Mercury to be used in hundreds of millions of Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (CFBs)  and require Mercury contamination procedures to be followed if a CFB breaks.  Incandescent bulbs contain no Mercury, can be produced and sold cheaply in the US.
