There was a time when individuals exercised enough personal responsibility and common sense that they did not need the government telling them what to do. Now, Michigan government is not only "telling," they are legislating! HB4217 mandates that all departments of government. "shall issue directives to require all buildings and facilities owned by this state to use high-efficiency lamps when replacing an existing lamp or installing a new lamp."
What would we do without the legislature watching over us! I guess the new phrase will have to be, "Will the last one out of Michigan please turn out the high-efficiency lights?"
