I have a question related to the upcoming laws that will effectively ban incandescent light bulbs (at least in their current form). I understand that stores will continue to sell compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs with both the "old" threaded style base (so they are compatible with existing incandescent fixtures) as well as the "new" 2-prong CFL base. My question is, after the incandescent ban is in full effect, will stores no longer sell fixtures with the "old" style threaded incandescent sockets? I can't stand the light from CFLs (migraines being one of many reasons I hate them), so I am already stockpiling a supply of incandescent bulbs that will last several decades. I'm trying to determine if I also need to purchase any incandescent fixtures I might need for future rennovation projects. Thanks!
