HARDI-backed Bill Passes House of Representatives

This January, the U.S. House of Representatives passed bill H.R. 185, a HARDI-supported bill, which would increase transparency and accountability to legislators imposing new regulations. The bill is designed to encourage an environment where the HVACR industry can work together to create more cost-effective regulations that are reasonable for the industry.

The bill itself would require that any new proposed regulation would have to undergo a thorough analysis of various regulation options including a cost-benefit analysis and increase public participation in the development of the regulations.

H.R. 185 will now be referred to the Senate. Should it pass the Senate it will then go directly to the President Obama who has already stated intentions to veto the bill.
