CV NEWS FEED // This week, the House plans to consider two bills aimed at defending against potential gas stove bans. The Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act (GSPFA) and the Save Our Gas Stoves Act (SOGSA) include provisions to help stave off regulatory restrictions on gas stoves.
The GSPFA would prohibit the CPSC from using federal funds “to regulate a gas stove as a banned hazardous product under section 8 of the Consumer Product Safety Act,” and from implementing any policy that would prohibit the sale of gas stoves or substantially raise their prices. The SOGSA would similarly bar the Secretary of Energy from implementing rules related to gas stoves.
The White House and the Consumer Product Safety Commission Chair have denied that the administration is seeking to ban gas stoves.
As reported by CatholicVote, the Biden administration’s green energy push for zero emissions has placed greater economic burdens on lower-income Americans than any other class:
Poor families suffer most when prices rise, and rising energy costs have a greater impact on their ability to pay for everything else. Basic needs – heating, cooling, transportation, and refrigeration – become unaffordable faster.
CatholicVote Director of Government Affairs praised this week’s proposed bills.
“As Americans just spent their Memorial Day enjoying a nice cookout, the Biden administration was conspiring to stop our future gatherings,” McClusky said. “The Democrats’ denials are just hot air, and the Republicans are right to stop them from taking our stoves and grills.”
