HPBA's Fall Legislative Priority Is Changeout Legislation
With Congress returning to session this month, our main legislative priority will be building support for legislation that would establish a national changeout fund. Legislation has already been introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Carper (D-DE) and Murkowski (R-AK). We are now working to have the same legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation would authorize $75 million each year for changeout programs across the U.S. and would fund replacements of non-certified woodstoves, hydronic heaters, and forced-air furnaces. Changeouts put money in your pocket when consumers take advantage of the program and come to your store to buy a stove! Take action now and send an email to your Senators urging them to cosponsor the legislation. Please contact Rachel Feinstein if you have any questions.
