The online letter campaign is intended to let your senators and representatives know that you support the Fire Sprinkler Incentive Act. From the call- to-action missive: “Your support is key, as we hope to move this important life safety legislation forward. It's time for there to be an economic incentive for business owners to install fire sprinklers, and we are hopeful that our efforts will encourage Congress to pass this legislation.”
