4M Supports Clean Start Legislation
CLEAN START LEGISLATION
COMMERCIAL CLEANING INDUSTRY HAS BEEN ON THE FRONT LINES BATTLING COVID-19
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the commercial cleaning industry has been on the front lines battling a situation that no one has seen before. Now the commercial cleaning industry is urging Congress for new legislation and three important areas:
- Provide liability protection for employers;
- Provide priority access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE);
- Enact a tax credit to all business cleaning services for reentry to offset the costs if necessary.
Reps. Darin LaHood (R-IL) and Stephanie Murchy (D-FL) introduced legislation (H.R. 7079) that would provide a temporary tax credit to businesses to ensure they are properly cleaned.
“As our economy begins to gradually reopen, responsible business owners will want to do everything possible to safeguard their workers and customers from COVID-19. I am proud to join Congressman LaHood and proposing a temporary tax credit to help businesses afford cleaning services and supplies, which will protect public health and spur economic activity,” said Representative Murphy.
4M Building Solutions supports this legislation through our involvement and leadership and BSCAI (Building Service Contractors Association International) and the NSA (National Service Alliance) which both support this legislation.
“These are important tax credits that our customers can use to clean and disinfect their buildings to provide a safer environment giving all their occupants a much greater sense of peace of mind,” says Tim Murch, CEO and Chairman of 4M.
