Affects: Those who build pools and spas
Bottom Line: This measure affects the ability to amend statewide building codes at the city or town level. Unless members in Massachusetts feel otherwise, this is a bill that APSP will remain neutral on but will monitor as it is important for our members to be aware of the final outcome.
