Bill A1570 requiring fire protection sprinkler systems in all one- and two-family home construction has been prefiled for the 2012-2013 legislative session in the State of New Jersey.NJ_FSI

During the last legislative session a similar bill was passed by the Assembly but its sister bill died in the Senate committee. It is important to see that home fire sprinkler advocates have support from legislators to revive the issue again this year.
