Huizenga, Mooney Introduce STOVE Act to Block a Potential Ban on Gas Stoves
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-04) announced the introduction of H.R. 263, the Stop Trying to Obsessively Vilify Energy (STOVE) Act. Recently, federal regulators have openly expressed their desire to ban gas stoves with a commissioner of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stating, “any option is on the table.” The STOVE Act preempts this bureaucratic overreach by prohibiting federal agencies from moving to ban gas stoves and similar gas-powered appliances.
“The last thing Americans need or want is another big government bureaucratic decision telling us which appliance we can have in our home,” said Congressman Bill Huizenga. “The STOVE Act is a common-sense measure that will stop bureaucrats from banning gas stoves or ranges. Americans should have the ability to choose the most affordable and most available way to cook food in their own home. It is absolutely ridiculous how out of control and out of touch the nanny state in Washington has become.”
Joining Congressman Huizenga in introducing the STOVE Act is West Virginia Congressman Alex Mooney.
“The Biden Administration’s new effort to ban the gas stoves used by millions of Americans is their latest attempt to advance the Green New Deal. Rural communities in West Virginia rely heavily on gas powered stoves and heaters, said Congressman Mooney. “I am proud to join my colleague, Bill Huizenga, in pushing back against this radical proposal.”
