He highlighted the benefits to consumers and businesses of the standards that have been implemented thus far. He also expressed support for the Implementation of Consensus Appliance Standards Agreement Act (INCAAA), which contains a variety of consensus proposals negotiated between product manufacturers, ACEEE, and other efficiency supporters, including consumer and environmental groups. He also mentioned ACEEE's opposition to S. 395, the Better Use of Light Bulbs Act (BULB), which would repeal Subtitle IIIB of EISA.
