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!
