Time to stock up on lightbulbs

Did you know that Congress passed a law that will make it illegal to import incandescent light bulbs starting in January 2012? All bulbs producing 100 watts worth of light meet certain efficiency goals, starting in 2012. Conventional light bulbs don’t meet those goals, so the law will prohibit making or importing them. The same rule will start apply to remaining bulbs 40 watts and above in 2014.

Ignoring the fact that I have a huge problem with the government telling me what I can and cannot buy, it looks like it would not be a bad idea to start stocking up.
