2018 Update Of The Light Bulb Legislation :
The 2007 light bulb legislation banned the manufacture of certain incandescent light bulbs, with specific time frames, concluding in 2020. 23 incandescent bulbs were exempt from the ban, including three-way, rough service, globe and decorative types.
In January 2017 the previous administration added all of the exempted bulbs to list of those that could no longer be manufactured in the United States.
Here is a recent Western Journal article about the current administration's Department of Energy considering lifting the executive action of January 2017.
The article talks about banning the sales of incandescents, but the original legislation of 2007 (and consequentially the executive action) banned the manufacturing of incandescent bulbs, not the sales of them. They have continued to be manufactured in other countries, and imported here for sales...with different wattages. Bright Lights USA continues to sell our supply of U.S. made rough service incandescent bulbs.
A lifting of the ban will most likely not change much, except to continue importation of the needed incandescents (the original legislation has not been enforced in that regard). The United States manufacturing of incandescent light bulbs has already ceased, with the production facilities being closed.
