New York State is also eyeing eliminating natural gas appliances but requiring all newly built homes in the state by 2025. The new law would also prohibit the installation of equipment used to cook, heat, or cool with oil and propane.

New York State is trying to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030, and 85% by 2050 across the state.

The Federal law would set the tone for states to follow. According to Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution, the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws and even state constitutions.

The federal agency is currently analyzing the pros and cons of the natural gas ban and as of this writing has not recommended regulatory action on natural gas stoves. There would be a review process before any action would take place.
