PROTECTING SMALL BUSINESS, PROMOTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP

SBE Council Supports “Save Our Gas Stoves Act,” H.R. 1640

Dear Member of the U.S. House of Representatives:

The use of natural gas in appliances, for heating and transportation purposes, and for other needs is producing positive benefits for consumers, small businesses and the environment. The Department of Energy’s proposed regulation for cooking products would needlessly damage these benefits, and make it impractical and costly for many small business owners and consumers to utilize government-approved redesigns of gas stoves. The proposed rule is a backward and unreasonable intrusion, and as such the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) supports the Save Our Gas Stoves Act (H.R. 1640).

SBE Council urges you to vote in favor of this important bill.

The legislation appropriately blocks DOE efforts to implement their misguided regulatory initiative. Forcing manufactures to redesign cooking products without cause, and ones that do not meet the needs of families and businesses, is truly government gone amok.

Small business owners and their employees want the government to focus on efforts that address economic stability and growth, high inflation, financial security, national security, community safety, affordable access to health care, and a quality education for all.  The Save Our Gas Stoves Act is an important measure that serves to keep Washington, D.C. focused on the important issues that matter, and out of areas where regulatory meddling is not warranted.

Sincerely,

Karen Kerrigan, President & CEO
