In addition to being the state that stood firm against Northern Aggression and the state that is home to some my favorite (and, alas, least favorite) people, South Carolina is also home to the BMW plant which make s Z-4s (Where’s the outlet store?) and some of the best golf outside of Alabama.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina lawmakers are taking a stand in favor of states’ lights.
With incandescent bulbs being phased out under federal law in favor of energy-efficient compact fluorescents, legislators want to exempt South Carolina from the measure, saying Washington has no business telling the state how to light its closets and countertops.
The proposed state law, called the Incandescent Light Bulb Freedom Act, “allows South Carolina to say to the federal government we are going to exercise our rights,” said Republican state Rep. Bill Sandifer, a co-sponsor.
There you go! Do you need any other reason to love South Carolina?
