Spending legislation expected to emerge as soon as Wednesday will include a rider against gas stove rulemaking at the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Democrats and the White House have touted the final fiscal 2024 spending packages as including no “poison pill” riders. But Republicans are trumpeting some wins — the gas stove language among them.

House GOP leaders — including Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) — shared some of their victories in a closed-door members’ meeting Wednesday morning.


Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) confirmed to E&E News that gas stoves came up, something that stood out because “it was ludicrous to begin with for the administration to ban gas stoves.”
