AGA Applauds Introduction of the “Save our Gas Stoves Act” and the “Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act”
Washington, DC – Reps. Lesko (R-AZ) and Armstrong (R-ND) recently introduced H.R. 1640, the Save Our Gas Stoves Act and H.R. 1615, the Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act.
“Customers like natural gas—in fact, one new residential customer signs up for natural gas service every minute, and approximately 80 businesses begin new natural gas service every day, said Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the American Gas Association. “Ensuring access to this foundation fuel for the 187 million Americans who use it every day benefits the economy and the environment, saving households that use natural gas an average of $1,068 each year and driving down emissions from the natural gas distribution system 69 percent since 1990.
American consumers should have the opportunity to continue to realize the benefits of natural gas for our economy and environment. We applaud Reps. Lesko and Armstrong for introduction this bill and we look forward to working with them to continue to protect consumer energy choice.”
