Bob the Conservative Clown Marshall Takes Another Stab at the Federal...

The federal government is at it again, telling us Virginians how to go about saving energy, money, and the environment. At least, that's what Prince William County Republican Bob Marshall is saying.

Del. Marshall has introduced a bill (HB 66) in the VA General Assembly that would permit the manufacture and sale of incandescent light bulbs within the commonwealth after new federal energy standards go into effect. Because incandescent light bulbs are so inefficient relative to other bulbs in the market, the former would basically be taken off the market by lack of consumer demand. Isn't that what markets are supposed to do Del. Marshall?

This bill by Marshall comes as one of many anti-federal government bills being pushed by the wing-nut conservative House of Delegates who see the federal government as interfering with Virginia's choices, choices in the case of Marshall's bill to add unnecessary energy demands and expenses onto the taxpayers of Virginia.
