Fire Sprinkler Legislation

Qualified Improvement Property Talking Points

Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Doug Jones (D-Ala.) last week introduced legislation (S. 803) to fix a provision in President Trump’s 2017 tax-cut law that adversely affects the sprinkler industry.

We need the entire fire sprinkler industry to contact your Senators and ask them to co-sponsor S. 803.
