Westrom fights federal bulb law

Email News Alerts

Rep. Torrey Westrom, R-Elbow Lake, wants to draw attention, and fight, a federal plan to stop the sale of traditional incandescent light bulbs.


He authored a bill that would exempt Minnesota from a federal law that he says essentially phases out incandescent bulbs as the country transitions to bulbs that use less energy.

The Westrom bill would allow light bulbs made in Minnesota to be used in Minnesota.
