The fight over the future of gas stoves could be coming to Pennsylvania.

At least one state lawmaker's looking to head off any ban on gas stoves, before it happens.

Bradford County Republican Martin Causer is looking for support for legislation that would prohibit state or local authorities from banning appliances based on the type of energy they use.

In January, CNN reported that 20 states with Republican-controlled legislatures have passed so-called Preemption Laws that prohibit cities from banning natural gas. 

Causer's bill comes after word came out last October that a gas stove ban was under consideration.

He said quote "It's not the role of government to be dictating to individuals and businesses what kind of appliances we are allowed to have" end quote.

President Joe Biden has said he does not support a ban on gas stoves.
