Biden admin begins enforcing nationwide lightbulb bans, igniting backlash from GOP: 'Liberal fantasies'
'It’s impossible for Democrats to leave us alone,' GOP congressman says

By Thomas Catenacci | Fox News

    The Biden administration will begin enforcing a nationwide ban on various types of popular light bulbs Tuesday as part of its aggressive energy efficiency agenda.

Under the Department of Energy's (DOE) regulations, manufacturers and retailers will be prohibited from selling incandescent and similar halogen light bulbs which represent a sizable share of current light bulb supplies. Instead, manufacturers and retailers must sell light-emitting diode, or LED, alternatives or risk substantial federal penalties.

"It’s impossible for Democrats to leave us alone. States must fight back," Rep. Bob Good, R-Va., tweeted ahead of the ban enforcement.

"President Biden continues to push liberal fantasies through his weaponized federal agencies," Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky., added. "The Department of Energy should be focused on American energy independence, not on what lightbulbs you can or can’t purchase for your home or business."
