The Security Industry Association (SIA) on Tuesday presented Jeannine Lane, vice president and general counsel for Honeywell International, with its Statesman Award at the Public Policy Dinner to recognize her leadership on SIA’s Government Relations Committee. The SIA Statesman award is the highest award presented to a SIA volunteer who makes significant contributions toward the attainment of SIA’s government relations goals. 

According to a SIA press release, Lane was essential in driving policy and coordinating industry support to correct the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, helping to draft legislative language which was recently introduced in the House of Representatives. In addition, she was a key participant in developing SIA’s position opposing New York State legislation that would have eroded liability protections provided to alarm manufacturers. Lane also was instrumental in developing SIA’s position against the Department of Transportation proposal to further regulate the transport of lithium batteries. 

“We are grateful to Ms. Lane for her leadership,” SIA CEO Richard Chace said. “She made significant contributions to SIA’s Government Relations efforts this year and has helped shape policies that support the security industry.”

The Public Policy Dinner was held in conjunction with SIA’s Government Summit, held June 7-9.
