Energy Subcommittee Advances Three Bills to Bolster America’s Energy Security and Protect Americans’ Home Appliance Choices
The Subcommittee on Energy, Climate, and Grid Security advanced three bills in a markup today to preserve people’s access to natural gas stoves, strengthen American leadership in clean nuclear energy, and protect our electric grid from cyber threats.
These Energy and Commerce bills are part of our work on energy and climate solutions to improve Americans’ lives, reduce emissions, and reduce our reliance on foreign adversaries, like Russia and China.
The following legislation was advanced to the full committee:
- H.R. 3277, the “Energy Emergency Leadership Act” was advanced to the full committee by a vote of 30-0. This bill, led by Reps. Tim Walberg (R-MI) and Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), will protect our energy infrastructure by assuring that DOE’s important cyber security and emergency functions are led by a Senate-confirmed assistant secretary.
- H.R. 1640, the “Save Our Gas Stoves Act” was advanced to the full committee by a vote of 20-10. This bill, led by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), will prevent the Biden administration from banning gas stoves, by prohibiting the DOE from finalizing or implementing its energy standard on cooking products and prohibiting any energy standards that would eliminate the availability of products based upon the fuel they use.
- H.R. 1042, the “Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act” was advanced to the full committee by a vote of 18-12. This bill, led by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), will help end America’s reliance on Russia for uranium.
