                                 DECEMBER 6, 2018.-Ordered to be printed


                    Mr. BARRASSO, from the Committee on Environment and Public
                                   Works, submitted the following

                                         REPORT

                                         [To accompany S. 1857]

                                           together with

                                        MINORITY   VIEWS

                           [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee  on Environment and Public Works, to which was
                  referred the bill (S. 1857) to establish a compliance deadline of May
                  15, 2023, for Step 2 emissions standards for new residential wood
                  heaters, new residential hydronic heaters, and forced-air furnaces,
                  having  considered the same, reports favorably thereon without
                  amendment  and recommends  that the bill do pass.
                               GENERAL  STATEMENT AND  BACKGROUND
                    S. 1857 is a bipartisan bill that delays the compliance date for
                  Step 2  of the EPA's 2015  New  Source Performance  Standards
                  (NSPS)1  for New Residential Wood Heaters (i.e., woodstoves and
                  pellet stoves) and New Residential Hydronic Heaters and Forced-
                  Air Furnaces for three years-from May 15, 2020 to May 15, 2023.
                    Step 1 of the NSPS is now in effect. Step 2 would impose even
                  stricter limits. Prior to Step 1 going into effect, the federal emis-
                  sions requirements  for wood  and pellet stoves had  not been
                  changed  since 1988, and hydronic heaters and forced-air furnaces
                  had never been subject to federal standards.

                    180 Fed. Reg. 13672 (Mar. 16, 2015).
