PHCC Launches New Legislative and Tracking Service
The launch of a state legislative and regulatory tracking service has been recently announced by the Plumbing–Heating–Cooling Contractors (PHCC). This new service lets PHCC members and local and state leaders keep track of active bills and regulations that affect their state or geographic region.
This online system can be easily accessed through the PHCC’s website and it gives chapter leaders and PHCC members the privilege to keep track of the regulations and bills that affect them in order for them to directly communicate or relate related issues to their state representatives. Some of the crucial issues that are presently affecting the plumbing-heating-cooling industry include workforce development, licensing, code developments, and unfair regulations.
PHCC President Chip Greene said, “With increased legislative and regulatory activity in recent years, it is more important than ever that our members and chapters have a quick and easy way to see a synopsis of relevant issues being discussed in their areas. We are very excited to offer this new online technology to help chapters be even more engaged with the legislative process in their states.”
By using this new service, chapter leaders and PHCC members can view an interactive map, click the state where they belong, and see the issues that affect the industry in their area. Also, the history, author, status, and even a vote count of the listed items can be accessed and viewed. A weekly report of new items will also be provided.
Greene added, “Based on the available information, PHCC chapters can determine a plan of action to support or oppose laws or regulations affecting their businesses. Our national office is ready to help with these grassroots efforts.”
PHCC is the oldest trade association in the construction industry and the premier organization for the plumbing-heating-cooling professionals. It has been the leader in promotion, advancement, education, and training since 1883. To date, the organization has more than 3,500 contractor members from open and union shops that work in commercial, residential, new construction, service and repair, and industrial industry segments.
