Re: Smaller size wire on 20A circuit for dedicated purpose?

Simple and direct answer, NO...

Stop and think about it. The light fixture wires will never be carrying a load other than the light fixture. The wire from the breaker to the bathroom will be carrying multiple loads that will add up.

The only issue is running a new wire from the light switch to the fixture. Wire feeding the bathroom is 12ga. I have already ran all others (fan, main light) with 12ga.
