"House Republicans Fight Obama's 'War On Ceiling Fans'"

"WASHINGTON -- Rep. Marsha Blackburn is not a fan. The Tennessee Republican says new regulations on energy efficiency will overly burden businesses in her district."

"At the center of Blackburn's concerns is the inclusion of ceiling fans and ceiling fan light kits in a list of appliances for which the Department of Energy is seeking to implement energy efficiency standards, as part of the Obama administration's broader agenda to gain more from each kilowatt of electricity and reduce carbon emissions in the fight against climate change.

As it turns out, Blackburn's state is home to the nation's biggest ceiling fan supplier, the Hunter Fan Company. "
