Each and every day, Obama’s legacy is torn apart a little bit more and it is delightful. The Iran Deal is gone. The Paris Accord is gone. His regulations are gone. And so on. Now, the Trump Admin. is preparing to roll back yet another Obama move.
From The Daily Caller:
The Trump administration is preparing to repeal an Obama-era rule effectively outlawing a wide swath of popular light bulbs, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
The Department of Energy is ready to scrap a rule broadening the number of light bulbs that must meet strict energy efficiency standards set to take effect in 2020, according to a document the agency published on its website. The document was later removed from the site, WaPo noted.
Former President Barack Obama’s DOE expanded the class of bulbs covered by a 2007 lightbulb ban to include bug lights, three-way bulbs, “rough service lamps,” and some decorative bulbs, such as globe-shaped bulbs. Obama’s decision came in January 2017 and roped in bulbs that had previously been exempt from the ban.
Sorry, Obama. Looks like the American people are going to be allowed to decide what kind of light bulbs they want. Not the government.
