Republican Senator Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming blasted the Biden Administration for their potential move to ban gas stoves.
"We write to express our strong opposition to reporting that certain members of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) may seek an outright ban on gas ranges and stoves." Lummis and other Senate Republicans wrote to Alexander Hoehn-Saric, the chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
"We also request additional information about the CPSC’s plans regarding this proposed action," Lummis and the group wrote.
Joe Biden Blasted AGAIN
"Sens. Lummis, Jim Risch (R-ID), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Deb Fischer (R-NE), John Boozman (R-AR), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Tim Scott (R-SC), Joni Ernst (R-IA), and Roger Wicker (R-MS) signed the letter to the CPSC," reports Breitbart.
"The Biden administration inflamed controversy when Richard Trumka Jr., a CPSC commissioner, said roughly a month ago that the banning of gas stoves was a 'real possibility,'" reported Breitbart.
"We need to be talking about regulating gas stoves, whether that’s drastically improving emissions or banning gas stoves entirely," said Trumka. Trumka also said banning gas stoves would be a "powerful tool" to lower air pollution.
"I think we ought to keep that possibility of a ban in mind because it’s a powerful tool in our tool belt and it’s a real possibility here," added Trumka.
Despite this news, last week Trumka claimed that the CPSC is not "coming for anyone’s gas stoves."
