MIACCA's Efforts on Bill SB-827 Passes House of Ways and Means Committee but did not get Voted on at the End of the Year
SB 827 was passed by Senate roll call on September 30th with 38 yeas and 0 nays It was passed through the House of Ways and Means Committee and was on it's way to full House vote. Due to lack of in person meetings, and too many agenda items to vote on, the bill did not make it on the special session agenda and did not move into law. We are confident that the bill will move quickly in this New Year, as it had made it so far in 2020.
This bill is important to the HVAC industry as it will continue the long standing safety practice of having employers attest to an applicant's mechanical work experience; and provide for a reasonable work experience credit for those who go to school to learn a skilled trade and successfully completes a recognized HVAC trade school, community college, or university program.
MIACCA will continue to keep you posted on the bills progress.
