ACCA Praises Presidential Address

ARLINGTON, VA — Paul T. Stalknecht, president and ceo of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), issued a statement about President George W. Bush’s recent State of the Union address.

“As the national association of ventilation design, installation, and maintenance companies, we pledge our continued efforts with the federal government to improve America’s indoor air systems to help keep our citizens safe against possible bioterror or chemical attacks,” said Stalknecht. “To reach the President’s goal of enhanced public health, as outlined in last night’s speech, we will continue our ongoing dialogue with the Office of Homeland Security and other stakeholders around the country to enhance the design of building infrastructure.”

Stalknecht also said that ACCA supports making the president’s tax cut package permanent, including the permanent repeal of the death tax.

“And we [ACCA] strongly support the President’s drive to create a balanced energy plan, one that will improve efficiency, reduce dependence on foreign markets, and sustain a healthy environment. We encourage the Senate to follow the House of Representatives in passing an energy package that will encourage consumers to reduce energy use, install more efficient heating and air conditioning systems, and keep air handling systems well-maintained.”
