Take Action to Stop the Illinois Sprinkler Mandate
The state legislature's Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) is considering a series of onerous requirements for new homes built in Illinois that will impact how people like you do business. The new rules would force buyers to install costly fire sprinkler systems in all newly-constructed homes, adding thousands of dollars in costs to an already-expensive process. There are also onerous retrofit mandates for high rise residential buildings which will result in significant assessments for property owners and managers resulting in high assessments on condominium owners and rent increases for renters. These mandates are unnecessary and a threat to private property rights, and the JCAR's members need to hear that case from concerned citizens now.
We have called on the citizens of Illinois to take action on this critical issue by contacting members of JCAR and urging them to prohibit these proposed rules. Please take action today, and expect more updates from us with opportunities to learn more and take further action in support of private property rights and common sense in housing policy.
