Minnesota Coalition is Formed

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) president Joel Hoiland and director of code and regulatory compliance, Mike Fischer, along with interested members met in St. Paul, Minn., last week to review the impact of the Window Safety legislation that has been introduced in the Minnesota Legislature. The meeting provided an opportunity to form a coalition to address the potential effects of the bill that would require the installation of "safety screens" on residential dwellings with above-grade windows. This requirement would take effect for new construction of multi-family dwellings on or after January 1, 2008, and single family dwellings on or after January 1, 2009.
