Here is Carolyn’s response:
Thank you for your submission – I have made a note of your concerns around Mercury content in CFL’s, and the use of subsidies to promote CFL’s.
These Standards are aiming to improve the quality of CFL’s in the marketplace – they are not designed to limit consumer choice in any way. You may have noted that one of the quality measures we are proposing is a maximum mercury content for all CFL’s. Currently there are no maximum levels.
