Refrigeration License Legislation

ACA/NE continues to monitor the legislation to require that HVAC contractors obtain a refrigeration license.  Last session the legislation was sent to a study committee, effectively killing the bill.

The public hearing is scheduled for early October. To kill the bill this session, ACA/NE has again retained the services of Delaney & Associates, Inc.
