Appeals Court Deals Blow To California City's Gas Stove Ban

• Zero Hedge

Authored by Katabella Roberts via The Epoch Times,

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has declined to reconsider a ruling preventing a ban proposed by the City of Berkeley, California, on new natural gas hookups from going into effect.

The panel's Jan. 2 ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by the California Restaurant Association (CRA) alleging federal law overruled the City of Berkeley's ban on installing natural gas installations in newly constructed buildings.

Berkeley became the first U.S. city to ban gas stove hook-up installations in 2019 after the city council passed an ordinance requiring that new buildings be built all-electric, beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
