I am ready to leave for my meeting today to fight for the rights of legal contractors in Massachusetts. Maybe this will even help contractors throughout the country.
I am scheduled for a meeting at 9:30 AM in Charlton, Mass with the Mass Federation of Building Officials. I was invited by the President, Robert Camacho. It turn out that a friend I grew up with is a building inspector and he got me the invitation.
I have invited Industry expert Shawn McCadden to join me. We will be joined by Nancy Barmakian and Jim Bryson from the Boston EPA Regional Headquarters. Also we have invited Ernie Kelley and Patty Sutcliff from the Division of Occupational Safety. DOS has applied to the EPA to take over the administration and enforcement of the EPA RRP Lead Rule.
My goal is to seek a requirement that will allow the building inspector to require an EPA Certification when any contractor applies for a permit.
I am excited to have this opportunity to fight for contractors and hope I can help lead the charge to establish a level playing field for all legal hard working contractors in Massachusetts and maybe even America.
Wish me luck.
I will let you all know the results in a few days.
