Take Action Now To Save Traditional Light Bulbs

A special message from Phyllis Schlafly at Eagle Forum:

Time is running out to save the Edison light bulb! Unless Congress takes action to repeal the so-called "efficiency standards" enacted under a liberal Congress, as of January 1, 2012, it will be illegal to sell the 100-watt incandescent light bulb.

Click here to sign the petition urging Congress to repeal the ban and allow us to keep our light bulbs!

The Edison light bulb is an historic symbol of American innovation, It is also a fine, perfectly safe and affordable consumer product that we like and prefer to the ugly, expensive, ineffective and toxic bulbs we will be forced to buy if the ban goes into effect.

Congress should not be picking winners and losers, allowing big corporate donors to dictate what consumer products we can and can't buy!

If we don't take a stand to save our light bulbs, what will they go after next? Sign the petition today!

Our Capitol Hill staff is working hard to keep the repeal at the forefront as Congress closes out the year. Conservatives in Congress are discussing several options for repealing the light bulb ban. The best hope is to attach repeal language to an upcoming budget bill or Continuing Resolution, which will be worked out in the next few weeks.

Please be sure to sign our repeal petition today and to forward this message to concerned friends and family. We need as many signers as possible, and our Capitol Hill staff will personally present the petition and signatures to Congressional leadership.

We want to be sure that they know that their constituents want them to fight to repeal the ban before it's too late!
