As a small business owner and licensed home inspector in your district, I am asking for your support forSenate Bill 704 and specifically bar code amendment 810350. This amendment removes the unfair trade practice that currently exists in F.S.627.711 regarding wind mitigation inspections. Currently, licensed contractor and engineer business owners can utilize unlicensed employees to do wind mitigation inspections while licensed home inspectors, licensed building code inspectors, and licensed architects cannot utilize unlicensed employees. As a small business owner, I have been negatively impacted by the current language in F.S 627.711 and the unfair market advantagethat the language provides for contractors and engineers. Barcode amendment 810350 removes this unfair trade practice by allowing all licensees to utilize employees and levels the playing field for all licensees authorized in statute to conduct wind mitigation inspections. Please support Senate Bill 704 and specifically bar code amendment 810350 for the benefit of many small business owners in your district and throughout thee ntire State of Florida.
Your name here.
