(TheRedWire.com) – The Biden administration’s efforts to regulate gas stoves have led to a lot of bipartisan opposition, especially as a couple of senators have been working on introducing a bill that would block the ban on gas stoves.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., introduces a bill known as the “Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act” which would prohibit the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) from proceeding with any regulations on both existing and new gas stoves. It also blocks any attempts to completely prohibit the use of gas stoves or any other move that would lead to the price of gas stoves increasing significantly.
Cruz wrote that radical environmentalists were trying to stop people from “using natural gas” through a proposed ban on gas stoves. He added that he was pleased to have worked with Manchin on this bipartisan bill that would stop the federal government from banning stoves, a move that would affect the “well-being of American families.”
Manchin also made a statement regarding this in which he noted that the federal government did not have any place to tell people how they ought to “cook their dinner.” He added the bill that Cruz and he had introduced would help Americans retain their right to cook on any time of the stove they want and would block the “overreach by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
The Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act’s introduction came only a few weeks after the Biden administration CPSC Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr., claimed that a ban on gas stoves was going to take place, was incorrect. Trumka noted that these types of stoves were unsafe and should be completely banned.
