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.
