US House conservatives revolt against leadership, block gas stove bill


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of about a dozen Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday staged a revolt against their leadership by blocking consideration of a bill related to the regulation of gas-fueled stoves.

The move was in retaliation for Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s deal with Democratic President Joe Biden on raising the U.S. debt limit, according to some Republican lawmakers.
