Let Congress know you support H.R. 184 and S. 775 -
The Mechanical Insulation Installation Incentive Act is very important to the Insulation industry. Keep reading for more information. A PDF of the bill is attached, or please visit http://www.insulators.org/blog/bid/70470/Let-Congress-know-you-support-H-R-184.
H.R. 184, the Mechanical Insulation Installation Incentive Act, was recently re-introduced by Representative Michael Grimm (R-NY) and Representative Timothy Bishop (D-NY).

A similar bill (S. 775: Mechanical Insulation Installation Incentive Act of 2013) was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Mike Johanns (R-NE).

The proposed legislation would create a tax credit for commercial buildings and industrial and manufacturing facilities, including power plants, refineries, hospitals, schools, and universities to increase the use of mechanical insulation.

The bills have been assigned to congressional committees, which must consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole. No action would kill the bills.

Asking your member of Congress to support the legislation can help raise the profile and awareness of the low cost and high impact that the mechanical insulation industry can have on our economy and the nation.
