Repealing Inefficient Electrical Ratios

ABC opposes electrical jobsite ratios that require inefficient allocation of manpower.
In 2008 an injunction was lifted resulting in new enforcement of jobsite ratios requiring one electrical journeyman or master electrician to every one apprentice. Numerous issues with this ratio system have been identified, including: it is disruptive to employers, costly to comply with, and prohibitive for job training.

This is a highly burdensome and inefficient regulation that did not exist for over 50 years (without incident), and should be repealed.
