Speaking with One Voice

The Northeast Pool & Spa Association is your voice on legislation and regulations impacting our industry. NESPA GRAC monitors legislative action across the region and represents the pool and spa industry when these important actions are being debated.




NESPA's Government Relations Action Committee (GRAC) brings together dedicated member volunteers and lobbyists on behalf of our members to oppose onerous over-regulation and advocate for our industry. We have important relationships with Federal, State and local officials and are in regular contact to share our industry’s perspective on legislation. 

The Government Relations Action Committee consists of representatives from each of our four chapters.  If you have questions about legislation and government regulations contact NESPA at 609-689-9111.

GRAC Update: NJ Licensing News

At the end of January, Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey signed into law legislation that creates licensing requirements for both pool & spa builders and pool & spa service contractors working in the State.   NESPA continues to meet with relevant government agencies regarding the implementation of these licenses. 
Pool & Spa Service Contractors and Pool & Spa Builders & Installers Advisory Committee posted the following alert on the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs website: 

P.L. 2019 c. 22 established the Pool and Spa Service Contractors and Pool and Spa Builders and Installers Advisory Committee, under the Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors, within the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. Licenses to engage in work as a pool and spa service contractor and pool and spa builder and installer are not yet available. 

The law includes a "grandfathering" provision that authorizes the Committee to issue a Pool and Spa Service Contractor and Pool and Spa Builders and Installers license without examination under certain circumstances. To afford applicants the full 24 months within which to make application, the 24 month grandfathering period will begin when regulations adopted by the Committee become effective.
