Good ol' fascialist (a combination of fascism and socialism) Tiberi voted to shove fluorescent light bulbs down our throats. The guy is a real piece of work. -- Jim
Utility wants longer to explain light-bulb plan

FirstEnergy Corp. says it needs more time to explain what it wants to do with the 3.75 million high-efficiency light bulbs it had hoped to sell to consumers whether they wanted them or not.
The Akron utility is trying to get an extension on the Monday deadline set by state regulators to explain how it will dispose of the compact fluorescent light bulbs.
The company wants to work the program into a three-year program it will file by Dec. 31.
The Ohio consumers' counsel objects to the delay and is telling the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio that. The PUCO in October rejected a FirstEnergy plan to hand-deliver bulbs to customers, then raise their bills to cover that cost and the lost energy revenue.
