Light Bulb Law “Screwed Up”

light bulb

How many Wyomingites does it take to change a light bulb?  While that may sound like the lead line of a joke, it actually is not.  The answer is only those holding valid electrician’s licenses are permitted to change light bulbs under an antiquated law.  However, Senators Gerald Geis and Cale Case of Fremont County want to change the law since virtually nobody in the state observes the unreasonable restriction.  Under the changes proposed in Senate File 42, everyone would be permitted to change a bulb as long as it doesn’t require changing or repairing a wire.  Senator Case says most people don’t follow the law as it is written, and fire marshals across the state don’t enforce it.  Says Case: “It’s not rocket science to replace a lamp or light bulb.”
