This legislative session in Albany, the NYALARM PAC continues to monitor important bills and initiatives that can affect the Security and Fire alarm industry in New York State. The bills that we are monitoring are attached as part of this update. Click here to view. Of particular note, is the efforts of the NYALARM PAC to continue to seek passage in the Assembly of the exemption for the Security and Fire Alarm industry of the requirements of the Evergreen Law. This currently puts a burden on both the consumer and industry to use certified mail for contract renewal notifications. This bill has stalled in the Judiciary Committee in the past. This committee has a new chair this year and with the work of our lobbyist and members of the NYSESA, we are optimistic that is will move in committee this session. The Senate has passed the bill for the last several years. Your contribution to the NYALARM PAC makes a difference for the industry. It allows contributions to be made to various legislators that are friendly to the industry. Thank you for your past and current contributions!
The 2016 New York State Legislative session in now in high gear! This is an election year for both the New York State Senate and Assembly. Our industry is well represented in Albany and is actively monitoring and supporting legislation that promotes the safety and security of all New Yorkers. Our government relations firm has compiled a report that summarizes all the proposed legislation that is important to our industry and is being tracked. We continue to push for support of our sponsored legislative initiative – the Evergreen Bill. We are hopeful that it will pass in the Assembly this session. It did pass in the Senate last year, due to the efforts of our bill sponsor, Senator Mike Ranzenhofer. Here is a link to the report. You will find it interesting and hopefully eye opening as to the number of bills that have an impact on our industry. This is the very reason we need your support by contributing to the NYALARM PAC.
