Rep. Rouzer Introduces Bill to Repeal EPA Rule Concerning Wood Heaters

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Rouzer (NC-7) introduced the
Stop EPA Overregulation of Rural Americans, which would repeal the Environmental Protection
Agency’s most recent rule for new residential wood heaters.
In early March, the EPA published a final rule establishing federal standards for residential wood
heaters. Small manufacturers are concerned that these standards would make heaters too cost
prohibitive to produce. Rural residents are worried
because the costs of additional regulations are always passed down to the consumer, and many rural
residents rely on wood-burning heaters to keep their energy costs low.
“This is a classic example of EPA nonsense,” said Congressman Rouzer. “The federal government has
no business telling private citizens how they should heat their homes. This is one more regulation
that will cause unnecessary harm and
cost small businesses and families all across America.”
