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.”

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
