MidStates is Taking Action


Earlier this week, we asked you to send an email to you Representative asking them to cosponsor the "Relief from New Source Performance Standards Act" (H.R. 453), which extends the Step 2 effective date of the EPA's standards for new wood heaters by three years (from May 15, 2020 to May 15, 2023).

Thank you to everyone listed below who took action and sent an email to their Representative. If you aren't on this list, take action now to be recognized in Friday's email update. We still need at least 40 additional cosponsors for this legislation!

Thank you...
Bill Caldwell, Joe Emmett, Linsey Fluty, Justin Gilbert, Tyler Hausfeld, Skip Jackson, Ken Lovell, Lance Mark, Chris Richardson, Peter Stuart, Steve Wilbar.

Tell Congress to Support New Wood Heater Legislation


Last week, Congressman Peterson (D-MN) introduced legislation that would extend the Step 2 effective date of EPA's rule for new residential wood heaters by three years, from May 15, 2020 to May 15, 2023. The bill, the "Relief from New Source Performance Standards Act" (H.R. 453), gives manufacturers more time to develop and pitch newly - compliant appliances and would protect retailers from being faced with stranded products in retail stores at great expense. This week is crucial to build momentum for our bill. We need 40 cosponsors right away! You must act NOW!
