ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America is tracking mold-related legislation introduced in more than 21 states, and has made a regularly updated database on the bills and their status available to its members.
Proposed legislation ranges from simple resolutions expressing concern to major legislative overhauls. In California, for example, the state Senate passed a resolution that "declares the intent of the legislature to enact legislation."
In Montana, the governor signed into law major legislation that requires the disclosure of potential for mold in property that is sold, while also providing immunity for sellers, property owners and property managers who comply with the disclosure requirements.
The table is updated as new information from state legislatures becomes available. It is accessible to members by visiting www.acca.org/members/mold_tracking/.
ACCA also has launched a special weekly briefing on mold and indoor air quality issues that gathers news and information from thousands of sources and delivers the most relevant items in a concise summary. These e-mail-only briefings are available by subscription to members and nonmembers of the association.
