>>> many things that will change on january 1st , here's one to remember. that day is the deadline for production to stop for 40 watt and 60 watt light bulbs . after that they'll start disappearing from stores. the government began phasing out 75 and 100 watt bulbs over the last year or so. they expect the phase out of more popular 60 and 40 watt bulbs to have a much bigger impact on consumers. time for a lot of us to start changing our light bulbs .
