Through our state affiliation with the Florida Association of Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors (FAPHCC) and national affiliation with the Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors (PHCC), a greater number of state legislatures are developing policies that impact our industry as they respond to electricity reliability and environmental challenges. Industry must respond with greater vigilance, thereby requiring additional monitoring and contact with agency officials, state legislators, and staff. Issues include producer "take-back" and recycling of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, indoor environmental quality legislation and regulation, state greenhouse gas reduction initiatives, and state procurement of energy efficiency products. Activities include tracking potential legislation and regulatory actions, participating in and responding to rule makings, and educating elected and appointed policymakers.
PHCC Pinellas maintains and supports its advocacy and awareness initiatives through both a public and member-only Internet presence.
