Michigan Rep. John Reilly (R-Oakland) recently backed House Bill 5164 with very little opposition in the House of Representatives. The bill was created to address the frequency of full inspections of high-pressure boilers.
As Michigan law currently stands, state inspectors are required to perform full inspections on high-pressure boilers every two years, which is an extremely long and tedious process for the inspectors and the business undergoing the inspection. With the proposed bill, the frequency of the inspections would be in line with the industry standard of every three years, according to a post Reilly made on Facebook.
“I voted for House Bill 5164, which would change the frequency for when the state inspectors must perform a full inspection of a high-pressure boiler from every two years to every three years,” wrote Reilly.
“The full internal inspection of high-pressure boiler systems is a very time-consuming process and is very burdensome for the entity and the department, and the industry standard for the inspection of high-pressure boiler systems is every three years. The bill passed 98-9.”
