Senate Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Preserve Consumer Choice in Gas Furnaces

WASHINGTON, DC (5/22/24) – Yesterday, the Senate passed S.J.Res.58, the Congressional Review Act resolution disapproving of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) energy conservation standards for residential gas furnaces, with a bipartisan vote of 50-45. The DOE’s extreme rules will eliminate the most affordable home heating options, reducing choice and raising costs for American consumers. AEA included S.J.Res.58 in the American Energy Scorecard.

Following the passage of this bill, AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“The Biden Administration’s relentless attack on the lifestyle and pocketbooks of American families hit a roadblock today thanks to the leadership of Senator Ted Cruz. Whether it is gas stoves, or cars, or in this case furnaces, Senator Cruz is fighting the misguided attacks on domestic oil and natural gas and helping shield American families from even higher prices brought about by the policies of President Joe Biden. The American Energy Alliance applauds Senator Cruz for advancing free markets and helping to keep home heating and cooling affordable.”
