HARDI Opens Portal to D.C., Urges Members to Take Action on the HFC Phasedown
New legislation introduced in Washington
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) has opened an online portal that allows individuals to easily take action in support of the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act.
Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) has introduced the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act, designed to allow the HVACR industry to transition to a new generation of refrigerants and maintain US leadership in air-conditioning and refrigeration technology.
Senators John Kennedy (R-LA) and Thomas Carper (D-DE) have introduced the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act (AIM Act) along with 12 other original bipartisan cosponsors which would give Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a limited grant of authority to phasedown the use of HFCs over the next 17 years. This regulation is necessary to move the industry to new HFO-based refrigerants and equipment.
HARDI has streamlined the process for members to take action through a portal that creates customizable action letters and sends them to the individual’s legislators, urging them to pass the AIM Act.
The portal will be available for individuals to take action on all issues that affect the HVACR industry as they arise, giving people the opportunity to participate in the issues that affect their business.
