House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Allowing Alternate Refrigerants in the UCC
In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation that would allow the Commonwealth to come into compliance with future federal regulations on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). The federal American Innovation and Manufacturing Act of 2020 provided the US EPA the authority to regulate the production and consumption of HFCs. Changes to our Uniform Construction Code (UCC) are needed in order to allow time for our industries to transition to alternate refrigerants prior to the federal regulatory change.

This legislation will simply allow the use of refrigerants in our Commonwealth listed as acceptable alternatives to HFCs under the federal Clean Air Act.

This change will allow us to reduce greenhouse gases emitted by the use of HFCs as well as create jobs to help fill the emerging market for newer refrigeration products and the manufacturing of those products.

Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB2079
