OPPOSE HB 360
Earlier in the Session a bill was introduced that would have exempted Barns turned into event centers (for wedding receptions, etc) from the sprinklers required of A-2 structures under the building code. After much pressure, the bill was withdrawn. This bill is supported by the KY Farm Bureau.
Now the measure is in House Bill 360, sponsored by Rep. Suzanne Miles of Owensboro. The bill is cleverly drafted and does not mention sprinklers. What they are planning is to say that because weddings can be held in these structures, they can fall under the Church exemption and not be required to have sprinklers.
This is setting up for disaster. Most of these facilities are beyond water mains and far from hydrants. The bill would permit up to 400 attendees at these events.
We are working with the Fire Service, Fire Inspectors, Architects and Pipefitters in opposing the bill. It is on the Senate Floor and action is pending.
It is important that you and all of your employees contact your state senator and leave a telephone message to OPPOSE HB 360 to save lives. The telephone number is 502-564-8100. Ask the operator for the Senator's telephone number.
It is critically important that these calls go in. If you don't know who your state senator is, contact your local board of elections or clerk's office.
