The News Journal: Carper co-sponsors legislation to help people buy cleaner wood stoves

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Two U.S. senators have proposed legislation that would give federal aid to help people across the country replace inefficient wood stoves.

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Delaware Democratic Sen. Tom Carper introduced the bill last month that would create a grant program through the Environmental Protection Agency to help people purchase clean-burning heaters, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported this week.
