Early this evening the House of Representatives failed to suspend the rules and pass the BULB Act, H.R. 2417, which would have repealed light bulb energy efficiency standards.   The vote was 233 to 193, and 1 “present” vote.  It failed to receive the two-thirds of vote of those present – or 280 — necessary to suspend the rules and pass it.  Ten Republicans voted against it, and one voted present.  Five Democrats votes to repeal the efficiency standards.
