Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) has introduced the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act, allowing the HVACR industry to transition to a new generation of refrigerants and maintain U.S. leadership in air-conditioning and refrigeration technology.
A national HFC phasedown, by federal legislation, would create new manufacturing jobs in the United States, spur further investment in the U.S. economy by the HVACR industry, and ensure the continued safety and training of licensed HVACR professionals.
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 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a limited grant of authority to phasedown the use of HFCs over the next 17 years. HARDI believes 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.
