Attorney General Liz Murrill Joins Comment Opposing New Biden administration Rule Increasing Costs of Stoves and Ovens

Louisiana Attorney General Liz Murrill joins 22 other state Attorneys General in opposing the Biden administration’s strict new energy-efficiency standards for stoves and ovens. The rule will increase the costs for kitchen appliances nationwide. 

"Joe Biden’s attack on consumers knows no boundaries - the cost of daily life has increased 20% since Biden took office and continues to rise. He wants to dictate your choice of car, dishwasher, stove, ceiling fan, and light bulbs. There’s nothing in your life these bureaucratic tyrants will leave untouched," said General Murrill.

The new energy-efficiency standards for stoves and ovens follow similarly strict new regulations on household refrigerators and freezers. Like those regulations, the new rule targeting stoves and ovens was proposed through a little-used procedure known as a “direct final rule,” whereby a federal agency skips the normal process of allowing interested parties to submit comments before finalizing a rule. The comment letter calls on the Department of Energy to give the States and consumers an opportunity to critique the rule before it takes effect. 

Joining Attorney General Murrill in signing the comment letter were the attorneys general of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
