Last Friday, we became aware of a law that was passed in Ohio, that seems to have been created by lobbyists to benefit their client, SecureView. There are several problems with it, but the largest seems to be the new material and how it affects our firefighters, and the fact that insurance companies won’t pay for this, which would leave the homeowner with a big bill they can’t be paid back for.

Here are some news articles about it that started this stir:
