WASHINGTON—Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Energy Policy, and Regulatory Affairs Chairman Pat Fallon (R-Texas) today announced a hearing titled “Cancelling Consumer Choice: Examining the Biden Administration’s Regulatory Assault on Americans’ Home Appliances” to bring transparency to the Department of Energy’s wave of new regulatory burdens on American consumers’ home appliances.
“The Department of Energy’s wave of new standards on everyday appliances from stoves to dishwashers to lightbulbs embodies the Biden Administration’s whole-of-government approach to over-regulate Americans’ day-to-day lives,” said Subcommittee Chairman Fallon. “The Biden Administration is doubling down on policies that will only make American families’ lives more expensive, after already ignoring the skyrocketing inflation it inflicted. The American people deserve to further understand these bizarre, targeted efforts to regulate their appliances out of existence.”
