HELP: WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

The Dutchess County Electrical Contractors Association ( a consortium of electrical contractors)
is sponsoring a bill in Dutchess County - New York, legislation, requiring ALL electrical contractors to be licensed.

It is our (the association) stand that this law will:
PROMOTE ELECTRICAL SAFETY ( by mandating that only licensed & trained electricians perform electrical work)
INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY ( thru training & licensing programs for electricians)
INCREASE CONSUMER PROTECTION (by requiring insurance & establishing a review board to oversee licensing)
SAVE LIVES ! ( by requiring only trained & licensed electricians to perform electrical work in public & private buildings)
This bill will go thru final legislative review & will be voted on, on Nov. 9;

PLEASE E-mail or write: the Dutchess County Legislature at:

Dutchess County Legislature
22 Market st.
Poughkeepsie NY 12601
e-mail dc9@idsi.net
please add "cc:all legislators"

& state your support.....

Thank You

Perhaps Bill has some current input?

IMHO, seems like County lic. instead of State. Local type licensure leads to 'fat wallets'!!
