The New York City Council wants to amend the city code to prevent you from using natural gas to heat your homes. If passed, the amendment would prohibit the use of affordable cleaner-burning natural gas in any new building or existing building, both commercial and residential, that has undergone renovations.  

If the council passes Bill 2317, affordable natural gas use for heating or other purposes would be prohibited in buildings where work occurred involving anything more than minor alterations and repairs. This, of course, could require NYC residents to shoulder the cost burden of retrofitting to install heating equipment such as electric heat pumps or other non-fossil fuel combusting devices in their homes. 

New Yorkers should be able to heat their homes with an affordable and reliable heating system.  Bill 2317 decreases our options and increases the cost of something as vital as heating

Please oppose the New York City gas ban!
