Political Activism

Idaho State Information

The Mechanical Insulators Labor Management Cooperative Trust (LMCT) is looking to aid in information available to elected officials, Insulators Union Locals and members, contractors and the general public in Idaho.

Some of the information on this page may be outdated with the coronavirus global pandemic. Please contact any member of the Mechanical Insulators LMCT with any questions.

On this page, you will find information related to state specific legislation that deals with mechanical insulation and labor, Political Action Committee (PAC) guidelines and information for the state’s federally elected officials.

There are 35 Senators and 70 Representatives in the Idaho state legislature.

Both chambers serve two-year terms. Idaho does not have term limits.

Requirements for both the Senate and the House are as follows: You must be 21 years of age at the time of the election, a citizen of the U.S., a registered voter in the state and a registered voter in the district in which you are running for one year.

The regular session begins in January each year and usually adjourns by mid March, but can be extended. Both chambers are controlled by the republicans.

Bill Information

There are currently no bills that are active in the current Legislative Session and pertain to the Mechanical Insulation industry.

There are many instances where Mechanical Insulation, Firestopping and other construction issues are prevalent and relevant to our industry in legislation that is not at the state level. 

Campaigning for work in educational facilities, industrial plants, manufacturing facilities, medical facilities and office/residential facilities often position our industry to be successful. 

If you know of any upcoming legislation or efforts being campaigned for this state, please contact the LMCT.

When a bill is introduced for the state-wide efforts, we will update this section.
