DeLauro, Larson Introduce Bill to Clean Up Home Heating Oil


WASHINGTON, DC – July 26, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Connecticut Representatives Rosa DeLauro and John Larson introduced legislation today to reduce the levels of sulfur in heating oil. Home heating oil, used by nearly 7.5 million households (and nearly 50 percent of Connecticut households), is remarkably similar to diesel fuel, with one exception—the higher concentration of sulfur in home heating oil, as much as 130 times higher. Lowering those sulfur levels will cut down on harmful emissions in the air, benefitting public health.
