Intent2011 c 331: "The legislature recognizes that fire sprinkler systems in private residences may prevent catastrophic losses of life and property, but that financial, technical, and other issues often discourage property owners from installing these protective systems.
It is the intent of the legislature to eradicate barriers that prevent the voluntary installation of sprinkler systems in private residences by promoting education regarding the effectiveness of residential fire sprinklers, and by providing financial and regulatory incentives to homeowners, builders, and water purveyors for voluntarily installing the systems. It is the further intent of the legislature to fully preserve the rulings of Fisk v. City of Kirkland, 164 Wn.2d 891 (2008), Stiefel v. City of Kent, 132 Wn. App.523 (2006), and similar cases." [ 2011 c 331 § 1.]
