THE IMPORTANCE OF A PRESENCE IN OLYMPIA
WAACCA is the only HVAC industry association to have a watchdog presence in Olympia. Through our lobbying efforts, we have the opportunity to find out about the things that go on in legislation that burden our small businesses in enough time to be able to rise up and fight against them. There is always some entity trying to push an issue that could have a negative or devastating impact on our livelihood. Without this presence in Olympia we wouldn’t know about these issues until it’s too late.
In addition to the annual battles at the Legislature where we have stopped overreaching regulation of the HVACR industry time and time again, we also monitor the State Building Code Council. Through this effort, we have stopped things like mandatory duct sealing and pushed practical solutions to energy efficiency issues that actually work for our customers. Additionally, we’ve been successful in our lobbying efforts to the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission, where we have been fully engaged in the fight against monopoly utilities trying to invade the robust free market of the HVAC industry.
