Creates the Outdoor Lighting Control Act. Provides requirements for shielding or filtration for the listed lamp types, unless the lighting contains an automatic shutoff device and is not used from 11:00 p.m. until sunrise. Exempts fossil fuel light produced directly or indirectly by the combustion of natural gas or other utility-type fossil fuels and those outdoor lighting fixtures installed prior to the effective date of the Act from the requirements of the Act. Provides that the Environmental Protection Agency may identify and designate, as dark areas, areas that are especially suitable for astronomical observations or that provide nocturnal benefits to flora and fauna due to their darkness; and shall submit a proposed plan to preserve areas designated as dark areas.
