Consumers and businesses are forced to buy folded fluorescent “CFL” bulbs and forbidden to buy incandescent. CFL bulbs were promised to last 11 years and be more environmentally responsible, but the opposite it true: they cost the environment more to make, contain hazardous chemicals that require special recycling, and last less than one year. Legislative changes are needed to force the manufacturers to comply with expectations for teh CFL environmental safety and 11 year life, and to provide consumers with a rational way to recycle expended CFL bulbs and receive replacement of CFL bulbs that last less than the promised 11 years.
