MEP Coalition Attends ABC Legislative Hobnob

The annual Legislative Hobnob is an opportunity for members of the construction industry to meet local and state representatives, school board members, and commissioners to voice their opinion on the policies and regulations that impact their businesses.

The MEP recently released a report entitled “Florida’s Failure to Regulate” which demonstrates how most states have already acted to prohibit ratepayer subsidized utility expansion and unfair competition. Since then, they have reached out to and have been contacted directly by many legislators, industry groups and associations, reporters and editors who are shocked, surprised and alarmed by what’s happening.

Thanks to Pat Ambrose, Chairman of the Board, Florida Refrigeration Air Conditioning Contractors Association (FRACCA), Brian Hastings, Director, Air Conditioning Contractors Association of Central Florida (ACC-CF) and Paula Huband, Executive Director, FRACCA, for representing the industry and making the case for legislative and regulatory action.
