H.R. 6192 Protects Traditional Fuels, Prevents Backdoor Bans, and Supports an ‘All of the Above’ Energy Approach

WASHINGTON, D.C.Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the national consumer advocate focused on the impacts energy policy has on families, small business and consumers, writes to voice its support for H.R. 6192, the “Hands Off Our Home Appliances Act,” legislation that preserves consumer choice and supports an “all of the above” approach to energy which empowers consumers to make rational and informed decisions about their energy usage. This preemptive piece of legislation ensures that the Biden Administration cannot continue attacking affordable and reliable energy types.

“For the last three years we have witnessed irresponsible policies at the federal and state level that have had the unfortunate consequence of increasing prices and harming reliability while failing to achieve environmental goals,” said CEA Vice President Kaitlin Hammons. “It is simply not feasible nor practical to prohibit the use of traditional fuels like natural gas and propane in homes and businesses either through outright bans or backdoor bans by changes to building codes. These harmful policies will lead to higher energy bills, significant service disruptions, and increase income inequality and segregation while doing little to achieve the environmental progress we all desire.”

Through the House’s passage of H.R. 6192, Congress is taking another step to preserve the right of an individual consumer to connect or use any available utility service or source of energy desired, furthering their access to affordable, reliable energy for their homes and businesses.
