Biden Administration’s Proposed Gas Stove Regulation May Violate Law, Expert Testifies

Epoch Times: Expert testimony before a House committee outlined flaws in the Biden administration’s gas stove tests and the potential illegality of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) upcoming rules for the appliances.

The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability held a hearing to examine the administration’s “regulatory assault on Americans’ gas stoves.”

During the hearing, witnesses Matthew Agen, Chief Regulatory Counsel for Energy at the American Gas Association, and Kenny Stein, Vice President for Policy of the Institute for Energy Research, outlined problems with the way the Department of Energy was approaching their rulemaking process.

During his testimony (pdf) Agen argued that the DOE’s analysis projects minimal cost savings for consumers, amounting to a meager $1.51 per year for gas cooktops.

Agen also contends that the proposed rule violates the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) by potentially making gas cooktops unavailable in the market and argues the administration exhibited a predetermined bias against gas burners compared to electric ones.

  1. Guess who will have the best gas stoves on the market. WH, Capital, all 3 letter gov’t buildings, every dem senator from schumer to Kerry. All the restaurants that cater to dems will be exempted. “Rules? We don’t follow our rules.”
    Way over due for a law that makes the lawmakers follow their laws. Hear that republican congress?

    I know. Every day it’s something more insane and stupid that is done in the effort they always state to protect the children and/or the aggrieved community of the day…but it’s just a totalitarian take over to see how much they can get away with.

    It’s just exhausting.

  3. Why is it that democrats hate everything American?? Maybe they should just pack up their bags and move out of America and find happiness somewhere else so they don’t have tear everything down and bad mouth how we got to where we are. And that place where we are is far from bad and terrible. Move out forever and find out what bad really is.

  4. Dems just want everyone to be serfs whom they lord over.
    They want this country to become China 2.0
    It’s not that they hate the country, it’s that they hate the country’s freedoms and the people who are free.
    It’s not profitable enough for them.
    If they control everything they get bigger bank accounts and more power while living behind their walled estates.

    The DOJ is now on par with Hitler’s Stasi and the USSR’s KGB.
    Don’t agree with the regime? Get arrested on fake charges and thrown in prison for 20 yrs.

    Thankfully there are lots of us who know they are powerless in the long run.

  5. I’m going on a limb saying this is possibly the electric company providers money behind this? And don’t forget control of the little people.
    Follow the money.
    I’m pretty sure this isn’t about the children, which they’re only concern with that is how they can abuse them.
