The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has been included in the Military Housing Readiness Council Act introduced by Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Thom Tillis in the United States Senate and Representatives Jacobs, Bice, Porter, and Ryan in the House of Representatives.
This legislation would create the Department of Defense’s Military Housing Readiness Council, a seventeen-person group consisting of various individuals, including members of the armed forces, military spouses, and a representative from the IICRC. The Council will be responsible for making recommendations regarding policies surrounding privatized military housing, monitoring landlord compliance with current policies (i.e., The Tenant Bill of Rights), and proposing ways to improve collaboration, awareness, and promotion of accurate information within military housing.
The bills have been referred to their respective Armed Forces Committees, though no meetings have been scheduled. The IICRC will continue to monitor and work to get this legislation passed through Congress and signed by President Biden.
