Senate Passes Bill Easing Energy Efficiency Rules on Appliances

December 6, 2012

The Senate passed a bill Thursday easing federal regulations on the manufacture of coolers, water heaters and other appliances.

Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Al.) introduced the American Energy Manufacturing Technical Corrections Act, H.R. 6582, which combines several proposals that the House and Senate have approved this year, including language that would allow manufacturers of walk-in coolers to use different standards to meet energy efficiency goals. It also eases rules for water heaters and over-the-counter refrigerators.

Mostofi, on the Chartis Rebranding to AIG
