Hot Air: Eureka! Congress blocks the incandescent light bulb ban

Or did they ? Catch the comments at Hot Air for hints….

Oh, and the bit about “reduces pollution”… how much pollution do you think will be generated by lightbulbs we can’t dispose of in landfills, and which require a hazmat team driving over to my house to clean up if they break?

Before I glow too much about this, though, let me add: The rider doesn’t actually repeal the ban; it just prevents the administration from spending any money to enforce the new light bulb standards. Still, at least we got something out of an 11th-hour spending deal that otherwise came up short.
