Georgia House says localities can't ban natural gas hookups

ATLANTA (AP) — Cities and counties in Georgia couldn’t ban connections to natural gas or any other fuel source under a bill that passed the House Monday on a 103-62 vote. No city or county in Georgia has yet to order such a ban, but supporters say they’re reacting to bans in other states. They say making sure no options are eliminated will keep prices low and help industries like restaurants that are especially reliant on natural gas. Opponents say the bill would retard local efforts to fight climate change by limiting the use of fossil fuels. Georgia localities including Atlanta, Savannah, Clarkston, Augusta-Richmond and Athens-Clarke have pledged to use 100% renewable energy by 2050
