DOE lighting efficiency standards may be shut off; cuts loom for loan guarantees

The lighting industry is scrambling this morning to gauge what effect a controversial provision slipped into the House omnibus appropriations language would have on its plans to comply with light bulb efficiency standards that were set to take effect in less than three weeks. The GOP-backed language -- originally included as an amendment to the Energy Department and Army Corps of Engineers spending bill the House passed this summer -- prohibits DOE from implementing the standards, some of which are already in effect and others that would require manufacturers to sell more efficient light bulbs starting Jan. 1.
