House Oversight subcommittee to hold hearing on Biden’s home appliance crackdown next week
The subcommittee's chairman, Rep. Pat Fallon, scolded the President for his ongoing war on American's "day-to-day lives."
The House Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Energy Policy, and Regulatory Affairs, led by Chairman Pat Fallon, R-Tex., is holding a hearing on the Department of Energy’s (DOE) recent crackdown on home appliances in American households.
In recent months, President Joe Biden’s DOE has proposed rules to severely restrict items such as gas-powered stoves, dishwashers, and even incandescent light bulbs, all in the name of reducing emissions and fighting climate change.
“The wave of new standards on everyday appliances… embodies the Biden Administration’s whole-of-government approach to over-regulate Americans’ day-to-day lives,” Congressman Fallon stated in the hearing announcement. “The American people deserve to further understand these bizarre, targeted efforts to regulate their appliances out of existence.”
The hearing, titled “Cancelling Consumer Choice: Examining the Biden Administration’s Regulatory Assault on Americans’ Home Appliances,” is slated to be held next Tuesday to examine these concerns.
