    Lighting Legislation – Sausage or Soufflé?

    “There are two things you never want to see being made – sausage and legislation.”

    Lighting legislation and associated regulations have been around for more than four decades. Sometimes legislation is messy and we don’t want to know what’s in it (like sausage); other times, it is well defined and desirable (like a tasty soufflé).

    Bob Horner, a long standing member of the IES and current Director of Public Policy, explains IES public policy strategy, existing and proposed federal lighting/energy legislation, the regulatory actions and effects on our community, and lighting legislation on a state level. Join us for a lunchtime presentation to discuss the current regulation menu.
