California Energy Commission delays TV regulation meeting to ‘consider’ submitted opinions


More developments in the absolutely gripping California Energy Commission vs The World drama. The CEC has delayed a meeting wherein it was to discuss the possible implementation of a ban of sorts on the sale of energy-hogging televisions. The Consumer Electronics Agency (it organizes CES every year) has been fighting against the measure, arguing that any such regulation would necessarily raise TV prices, stifle innovation, etc.

But yes, the meeting has been postponed till November 18.

The CEC said it postponed the meeting in order to “consider all the comments submitted” by the November 2 public comment deadline.

Bureaucratic nonsense, all of this.
