Today, the Senate is set to vote on a resolution that would overturn the Department of Energy’s radical furnace rule, preventing price increases and protecting consumer choice. CEI Senior Fellow Ben Lieberman applauds the resolution:

“The Senate is poised today to vote on S.J. Res. 58, a Congressional Review Act resolution sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to overturn the Department of Energy’s (DOE) furnace rule. The Senate is to be applauded for taking on DOE’s latest efficiency regulation for furnaces. This rule will raise the cost of a new furnace. Even worse, it would end the availability of non-condensing gas furnaces which is the best choice for millions of owners of older homes. The fact that it disproportionately burdens low-income homeowners is all the more reason to block the rule by voting yes on S.J. Res. 58. CEI urges all Senators to vote aye on the resolution.”
