      directly in the area of very private, very personal taste/consumption/biology.  Different people react differently to alterations in light spectrum.  Pretending that one size fits all and can be mandated by government fiat is like declaring that people who can't comfortably live as vegetarians are Evil.  It's not that simple.  Bad lighting is intensely uncomfortable and can cause neurological problems.  And bad lighting is different for different people.  Furthermore, recall that there is not and never has been a single manufacturer of CFCs based in the US.  The labor costs would be prohibitive if not performed by low-cost workers denied decent wages and benefits.
