Proposed Rule Extending the Effective Date For the New Lamp Requirements in the Appliance Labeling Rule, FTC Rule No. R611004

This whole idea of a new light bulb is patently ridiculous and in fact is dangerous. Mercury is inside each bulb and if broken is a real hazard. Not to mention that the bulbs do not light as well at all and do not last any longer than the other tungsten ones have for us - and I have heard the same from other families as well. This is just another money grab by the crazy, wacked-out money and power hungry mental midgets who run our government at this time. Give people 60 more years and not just 6 months longer. This is legalized theft.
