Another post on this the next day, Wednesday April 11th, with more information.
The Missouri bill was favorably passed out of the House Small Business Committee on April 4th.
It now moves on to House Rules, and then hopefully the House floor.
Many thanks to Committee Vice Chairman Noel Torpey for this information.

Just learned that Missouri local state Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger and Bart Korman have also, January 4, launched a bill 1146, that "Specifies that the intrastate manufacturing of certain incandescent lightbulbs is not subject to federal law or regulation".
The bill has on January 19 been referred to the House Small Business Committee.
Missouri also had an earlier bill (2468) in 2010 with Cynthia Davis as chief sponsor, that stalled.
