WDMA Applauds Veto of Harmful Warranty Bill 

The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) is applauding Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) for vetoing recently passed legislation in Connecticut affecting consumer warranties for windows. 
 
The onerous provisions of S.B. 821 would require window, roofing and siding manufacturers offering consumer warranties to make a determination on claims within 30 days of receiving the claim.  After that period, the claim is automatically considered approved, and the manufacturer would be required to pay the claim within the following 30 days.  In addition, the bill would require that manufacturers pay any warranty claim made for materials and labor and must reimburse the full price of the materials and labor the consumer was charged.  The bill would have necessitated manufacturers choosing to do business in the state to create separate warranty procedures in Connecticut differing from the rest of the nation.
 
"WDMA commends Gov. Malloy for vetoing this unprecedented and problematically-vague legislation," said Michael O'Brien, WDMA President and CEO.  "The bill would have changed existing law without any justification or public hearing, harmed manufacturers, dealers and consumers and created legal uncertainty and needless litigation."
