Congress Voting To Repeal Bush Administrations Incandescent Bulb Ban

SlashDot "CNN Money is running as story about a bill Congress is going to vote on today to repeal the 'incandescent light bulb ban' that was put into place during the Bush administration. The bill is supported by Republicans in Congress who are claiming this places unnecessary restrictions on the market. For those of you wondering, it does bring up the standard issues of energy efficiency, mercury (in both the bulbs and that emitted by coal power), and cost of the bulbs. The bill was introduced by Texas Congressman Joe Barton."  Activists Seek Repeal of Ban On Incandescent Bulbs

What have we done with this ban?
