ORANGE, Calif. - Members of Orange Empire SMACNA, a local chapter of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association, met recently with Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez on Capitol Hill to voice their concerns on several issues, including multiemployer pension law reform, national energy policy affecting the sheet metal and HVAC industry, and permanent repeal of the estate tax. This California delegation joined more than 275 union construction industry professionals at the Campaign for Quality Construction National Issues Conference, held May 4-5 in Washington, D.C.

Orange Empire SMACNA represents over 50 contributing contractors throughout Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange Counties.
