Sign petition showing support for responsible fire sprinkler policy

Illinois REALTORS®, sign this petition supporting House Bill 4609 for responsible fire sprinkler policy and ask your clients to sign too!

The Lakefront Coalition for Responsible Fire Sprinkler Policy petition sends a show of public support for state Representative Sara Feigenholtz’s bill, House Bill 4609, which prohibits the State Fire Marshal from adopting by administrative rule a new state mandate requiring fire sprinklers in buildings. House Bill 4609 places the decision on whether to impose such a mandate in the hands of the General Assembly, or elected officials at the local level, who are accountable to voters.

“The Lakefront Coalition began in the district of the chief sponsor of House Bill 4609, Representative Sara Feigenholtz. We urge people from all over the state to join in this effort to send a strong STATEWIDE message of support for House Bill 4609. The IAR strongly objects to efforts to impose costly and onerous fire sprinkler mandates without legislative review first,” said Julie Sullivan, director of legislative and political affairs for the Illinois Association of REALTORS®”
