State Sessions Wind to a Close, But Don't Let Your Guard Down

BOB KOCIOLEK

By the end of this month, only eight states — Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — still will be in session. If you live or inspect in any of those states, stay on guard for any surprises, either in previously introduced legislation or in legislation introduced at the last minute. Check with ASHI’s Legislative Action Center for updates and stay in contact with your lobbyist, if you have one, and with your elected officials. Let them know who you are and what you do and how interested you are in any legislation that affects inspectors.
