Home Builders Urge Opposition to Proposed Sprinkler Mandate


Local builders are continuing to sound the alarm about proposed new state rules that could add thousands of dollars to the cost of home construction.

 

As 970 WMAY first reported earlier this month, the State Fire Marshal wants to require automatic sprinklers in all new home construction.

 

Fire Marshal Larry Matkaitis says the regulation will save lives.

 

But Dean Graven of the Springfield Area Home Builders Association says the proposal is a costly intrusion into the private marketplace, and will hurt the slow recovery of the local housing market.
