House Passes Energy Bill
An amendment was added by Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), which would maintain PUHCA, but support for the amendment fell mainly along party lines.
The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors — National Association (PHCC) voiced support for the amendment and anticipates Dingell’s amendment to be offered during the Senate’s consideration of an energy package.
While the House passed a measure that failed to include tax incentives for water submetering, the Senate’s package includes these incentives and others to support purchase of premium-efficiency central air conditioners and heat pumps.
