House to consider legislation for home appliances rather than Ukraine assistance

The GOP-led House of Representatives is facing delays in bringing a Ukraine aid bill to a vote, possibly due to a feud between Speaker of the House Mike Johnson and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Despite the Senate passing a $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine and Israel, Johnson has not yet brought a similar bill to a vote. Negotiations have been ongoing with the White House, but no timeline has been set for when a vote may occur.

In the meantime, the House Rules Committee announced plans to review six bills related to government regulations on household appliances. The bills include the Hands Off Our Home Appliances Act, Liberty in Laundry Act, Clothes Dryers Reliability Act, Refrigerator Freedom Act, Affordable Air Conditioning Act, and Stop Unaffordable Dishwasher Standards Act. These bills are reminiscent of a previous bill that passed to prevent a gas stove ban, despite not being on the table.

Additionally, the House is set to vote on Friday to renew the nation’s warrantless surveillance program for an additional two years. Originally planned for a five-year extension, 19 Republican members forced a change to the timeline by spoiling a procedural vote on Wednesday.
