The House will hold floor votes this week on bills that would roll back the Biden administration’s energy efficiency agenda on home appliances and give mining companies more leeway to store waste on public land.

Lawmakers will debate Arizona Republican Rep. Debbie Lesko’s “Hands Off Our Home Appliances Act,” H.R. 6192, to prohibit the Department of Energy from implementing or enforcing efficiency standards on a wide variety of home appliances if they are not “technically feasible or economically justified” and if they do not result in “significant conservation of energy.”

“House Republicans are bringing legislation next week to preserve consumer choice and keep government agencies out of Americans’ homes,” said House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.).

“You should be able to choose which appliances best meet your needs and the needs of your family,” Scalise continued.
