Update on House Bill 1196
Residential Sprinklers Are on the Way

Last week we reported on the Pennsylvania Senate's amendment to House Bill 1196 (HB 1196), which would have delayed the implementation of the residential sprinkler mandate for one year, until January 2012.

As promised, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives returned to Harrisburg for one last session day on November 15. However, HB 1196 did not get to the floor for a concurrence vote on the Senate's amendment. Thus, HB 1196 is dead, and the residential sprinkler mandate will become effective on January 1, 2011. Industry insiders have promised to introduce new legislation next session.

If you have any questions or would like additional information about the residential sprinkler mandate, please contact Steve Williams at (717) 234-5530 or, or the Cohen Seglias attorney with whom you normally consult.
