Michigan 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 Michigan.

Some of the information on this page may be outdated with the coronavirus global pandemic.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.

Michigan has two chambers, the Senate and the House. There are 38 Senators and 110 House members. Senators serve four year terms and Representatives serve two year terms. There are term limits in both chambers. Senators serve two four year terms and Representatives three two year terms. The qualifications for both chambers are the same. You must be at least 21 years of age, a US citizen and a registered voter in the district they are running in. The session begins on the second Wednesday of January every year at noon. The session generally lasts for the entire year with several periods of recess. The Republicans control both chambers but the Governor is a Democrat.

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.
