04-24) 04:00 PDT Sacramento -- An Assembly committee approved a bill Monday that would make California the first state in the nation to ban the sale of incandescent lightbulbs.
The proposal would ban incandescent bulbs between 25 watts and 150 watts by 2012. The bill's author, Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, says a move to compact fluorescent bulbs, which last up to 10 times longer, would result in an energy savings and reduce carbon emissions.
