North Carolina Senate Nullifies EPA Regulation

Posted in Legislation, Tyranny2 years ago • Written by Defender Of LibertyNo Comments

     The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the challenger to the Internal Revenue Service for most tyrannical federal government (fedgov) agency, recently passed regulations governing residential wood stoves. That’s right, the EPA is regulating wood stoves.

     The regulations are very specific and require manufacturers, retailers, and consumers to comply with the following emission standards:

  • All stoves without current EPA certification – 4.5 grams per hour operation for catalytic and non-catalytic stoves. Limit is for crib testing. If tested with cord wood, emissions test method must be approved, and stoves must meet crib wood limit.
  • All wood stoves and pellet stoves – 2.0 grams per hour for catalytic and non-catalytic stoves, if emissions are tested using cribs. Alternative limit: 2.5 grams per hour, if tested with cord wood; method must be approved.
What are the consequences for those who do not comply with the regulations? The EPA will fine any manufacturer, retailer, or private citizen that is in possession of a stove that does not meet EPA standards. The EPA claims that it can fine as much and as often as it wants and has the power to garnish wages to collect the fines.
     Senate Bill 303 has been introduced in the North Carolina Senate to nullify newly promulgated EPA regulations that are designed to regulate and eventually prevent the American people from using wood stoves for heat. Several state senators in North Carolina have been very outspoken about the EPA’s regulations on wood-burning stoves, including Chad Barefoot who said, “The EPA has drafted over 300 pages of regulations for wood stoves and heaters,” noting that in many western North Carolina counties have large populations that rely on wood stoves for heat. State Senator Ralph Hise summed up the EPA regulations nicely when he stated, “This is the point where the EPA has really hopped on the crazy train.” The EPA hopped on the crazy train a long time ago, so states need to fight back by adopting a policy of nullification for unconstitutional fedgov regulations.


     Members of the North Carolina senate have recognized that the EPA is an out of control fedgov agency made up of bureaucrats who are dedicated to a political agenda designed to tyrannize over the American people and de-industrialize America. “No longer is the state going to be on autopilot for what the EPA is cramming down upon us,” Barefoot said. The choice is simple for states: succumb to fedgov tryranny or adopt a policy of nullification and be prepared to defend their actions based on the Tenth Amendment.

A frustrated conservative who is very concerned that America has entered its twilight years. Dan has a B.A. in political philosophy and an MBA with a concentration in finance. He has an honorable discharge from the United States Navy after serving for several years after graduating from high school. Please share this with liberals and RINOs because there is nothing better than upsetting them. The U.S. is no longer a constitutional republic, but rather an oligarchy. We live in a post constitutional America where competing tribes sell their votes for the promise of freebies. America is on the cusp of being lost to Marxists and their army of bureaucrats unless the American people move outside of their comfort zone and get involved the same way Marxists have gotten involved by infiltrating the political, educational, and bureaucratic systems.
