Bill Caption

Relating to the effect on local regulation of state law for fire extinguisher service and installation.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal impact is expected. 

Bill Analysis

HB 2426 would provide counties and municipalities authority over fire extinguisher service and installation contractors, along with requiring a registered firm to obtain a permit and pay a permit fee for the installation of a fixed fire extinguisher system. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 2426 would give counties and municipalities authority which they currently do not have. This bill would expand local government and its ability to charge permit fees. We are opposed to this legislation.
