Bill to Ban Gas Stovetops Fails in House

Conservative Republicans Block Bill to Protect Gas Stoves

The House of Representatives failed to begin debate on a bill on June 6 to protect gas stoves, thanks to a group of conservative Republicans who expressed their discontent with House GOP leadership. The vote was 206-220.

Who Voted Against the Bill?

  • Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.)
  • Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.)
  • Ken Buck (R-Colo.)
  • Dan Bishop (R-N.C.)
  • Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.)
  • Eli Crane (R-Ariz.)
  • Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.)
  • Bob Good (R-Va.)
  • Ralph Norman (R-S.C.)
  • Matt Rosendale (R-Mt.)
  • Chip Roy (R-Texas)
  • House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.)

Burchett and Boebert were initially “yea” votes before switching to “nay.”

The GOP votes against the resolution to move to the consideration of the Save Our Gas Stoves Act, Separation of Powers Restoration Act, the Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act, and the REINS Act come as members of the Freedom Caucus expressed anger at House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and the House GOP leadership team over last week’s debt ceiling legislation, which Freedom Caucus members and other Republicans panned as inadequate with regard to reducing America’s almost $32 trillion national debt.

The REINS Act would allow Congress to approve or disapprove of new major federal regulations.

What Happened on the House Floor?

On the House floor, Scalise and House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) huddled with Freedom Caucus members. Scalise was also spotted talking with Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) in the House chamber. Clyde has accused House GOP leadership of telling him that it would be difficult for him to get his bill to block the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’ pistol brace rule were Clyde to vote against proceeding with the then-debt ceiling.

The conservative Republicans’ move to block the bill highlights the ongoing tension within the GOP over leadership and policy decisions. It remains to be seen how this will impact future legislation and the party’s ability to pass bills in the House.
