BOILING POINT: Biden Admin Memo Shows it WAS Serious About Banning Gas Stoves

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.02.23

An internal memo obtained and reviewed by Fox News Digital reveals the Biden Administration was serious about banning gas stoves, despite its claim to the contrary.

From Fox News:

In the memo dated Oct. 25, 2022, Richard Trumka Jr. — whom President Biden appointedto serve on the five-person Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) — wrote to a fellow commissioner that there was sufficient evidence for the agency to move forward with a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) to ban gas stoves in the near future. Trumka’s memo was titled, “NPR Proposing Ban on Gas Stoves (Indoor Air Quality).”

“The need for gas stove regulation has reached a boiling point,” the CPSC commissioner wrote in the October memo. “CPSC has the responsibility to ban consumer products that emit hazardous substances, particularly, when those emissions harm children, under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.”

“Emerging evidence is sufficient to conclude that gas stoves in homes emit toxic gasses that cause illness and that lower-cost, safer alternatives are available,” Trumka added.

“There is sufficient information available for CPSC to issue an NPR in FY 2023 proposing to ban gas stoves in homes,” he concluded. “The additional work needed to complete an NPR is primarily economic; the available health and scientific evidence on illnesses caused by the relevant gasses at the concentrations present in homes with gas stoves already exists.”

The gas stove ban is getting pushback from both sides of the aisle. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has been a very vocal opponent of the idea.

“I have come out strongly against the consumer product safety commission pursuing any ban of gas stoves…I’ve always been a proponent of energy efficiency…but…They’re not taking my gas stove,” Manchin said.
