State Legislative Days ASCA
The ASCA leads the way in initiating positive legislative change to protect professional snow and ice management companies. The ASCA’s model legislation -- The Snow Plow and Deicing Limited Liability Act -- levels the playing field and eliminates the practice of property owners and property managers passing on their liability to snow and ice management companies.
As a result of state-based legislative days, The Snow Plow and Deicing Limited Liability Act is finding rousing success in the halls of state governments across the country. To date, it has been introduced in IL, NY, NJ, PA, IN, and MI. The legislation has passed unanimously in both the Illinois House and Senate, and signed by the Governor in August 2016, the Snow Plow and Deicing Limited Liability Act is protecting contractors. The goal is passage of this legislation in every snow state.
The ASCA organizes legislative days throughout the country to introduce and lobby for The Snow Plow and Deicing Limited Liability Act and other bills to protect the industry. Your state representatives want to hear from you. Remember, once an official is elected, they have two jobs: To represent the people who elected them; and to get re-elected. They do this by meeting with their constituents.
The ASCA and its members have met with hundreds of Congressmen and Senators to educate them on industry topics. Together, the industry has the positioning and the story. Now we need you. If you don’t show up to your state legislative day to represent the professional snow and ice management industry, then who will?
