Even if it will cost you MORE money?
"State regulators are getting ready to curb the growing power gluttony of TV sets by drafting the nation's first rules requiring retailers to sell ONLY the most energy-efficient models, starting in 2011."
How many Californians will order your TV from other states? Or who thinks Appliance retailers in CA will lose money(forcine consumers to other states to buy tv's)?

Makes me wonder if Pelosi has her hand in the pot. I love how she expects others to do without or have to buy the most upgraded 'government approved' things (because it's oh-so-good for the environment), yet she still takes her private government paid jet to D.C. Pot, meet kettle.
As for the original question, I do feel that this would be an example of govt. getting too involved with citizen's lives. Appliance companies are making things more energy efficient anyhow, and when old stuff breaks or wears out, people will buy the new energy efficient appliances. Isn't that enough? Are we going to come up with a new oven, or stove top that citizens are required to use as well? If govt. wants to mandate it, they have to make it affordable, IMO. And since private companies make these appliances, govt. has no right to 'make' it affordable.
