I’ve posted here, here, and here regarding the debate that continues in Wisconsin regarding a proposed requirement to protect apartment complexes with fire sprinklers that have three or more units. Mark Etrheim and Michael Miller of the Wisconsin Home Builders Association wrote a rebuttal to Captain Larry Wilson’s commentary. Captain Wilson asserts home builders are are opposed to the requirement based only on cost impact. The representatives of the Wisconsin Home Builders state that it is not the cost but respect for the legislative process that is the reason they are opposed to the initiative.
The latest word comes from the NFSA. They have released a white paper on the Wisconsin Home Builders rebuttal. Click on the link and check out the release it is a well written response to the home builders.
