ARLINGTON, Va. - In an effort to help contractors through the political process, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America has added the Legislative Action Center to its Web Site,

The center includes an Elected Officials portion, which allows contractors to search for information on their elected officials by state or locale. The Issues section includes news and information about current issues, summaries, and status of key bills, key congressional roll call votes, and tips about communication with members of Congress.

The center also provides an Election section that provides information about candidates and upcoming elections. It also gives contractors the ability to register to vote.

"There are so many important issues, like Association Health Plans and repeal of the death tax, that could have a big impact on contractors," said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. "The Legislative Action Center provides numerous resources to help contractors get involved and keep abreast of the legislation that affects the HVACR industry and businesses."
