Spotlight will shine on light bulb controversy at Senate hearing today

A bitter fight is brewing on Capitol Hill over an unlikely subject: light bulbs. In their latest crusade against big government, conservatives in Congress want to repeal lighting efficiency standards set to go into effect by the end of this year. At issue is language in a broad 2007 energy law that phases out use of the most energy-consuming incandescent light bulbs over the next few years. The law requires the phaseout of 100-watt incandescent bulbs by the end of this year, and it would end the use of 40-watt incandescents by the end of 2013.
