WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-2nd) announced, Jan.11, he is introducing legislation that will prohibit federal agencies from banning any gas-powered appliances or devices commonly found in residential properties. 
Van Drew said in a press release that millions of Americans, and thousands of South Jerseyans, own and operate gas stoves every day.
“This move from a (President Joe) Biden appointee to suggest that gas-powered stoves could be banned on a nationwide basis is effectively telling these Americans what they can or cannot do in the privacy of their own home,” Van Drew said. “The American people are tired of unelected Washington bureaucrats attempting to dictate their daily lives.”
Van Drew said Congress needs to put pressure on this administration and fight these proposals, saying the “Democrats will continue pushing these radical ideas until they become federal law.” 
He said some states have already begun implementing these “arbitrary bans” and are using a loosely correlated report to push their agenda.
“My legislation will ensure that New Jersey is not the next state to implement this blatant governmental overreach,” Van Drew said.
