House passes bill to protect gas stoves

After months-long controversy sparked by the Biden administration’s proposed option to ban it, House Republicans passed a bill Tuesday to protect gas-powered stoves.

The Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act, introduced in March by North Dakota Congressman Kelly Armstrong, “prohibit[s] the use of Federal funds to ban gas stoves.” It passed the House early Tuesday evening by a 248-180 vote.

Initially, the bill was slated for a vote last week, but was delayed when a group of Republicans shot down a procedural rule.

Having passed, the bill now heads to the Senate where an uphill battle to advance it is expected.
