The Department of Business and Professional Regulation is scheduled hold the first of four meetings regarding alternatives-to-licensure in the areas of home inspection, mold assessment and mold remediation.
On June 22, Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed House Bill 315, enacted by the 2005 Legislature, relating to building assessment and remediation.
In a veto message, Bush said more consumer protection is needed for these fields and directed DBPR to work with various stakeholders prior to the 2006 legislative session to develop proposed legislation.
Each of the four meetings will focus on a particular aspect of building assessment and remediation and the starting point for the discussions will be the alternative-to-licensure approach in HB 315, a release said.
The workshop topic for the August 16th meeting is alternatives to licensure and consumer protection in the field of home inspection.
A call-in number is 850-921-6623. All building assessment and remediation stakeholder meetings will be held at DBPR's main office in Tallahassee, starting at 9:00 a.m.
The department's mission is to protect the health, safety and welfare of those doing business in Florida. DBPR licenses nearly one million businesses and professionals ranging from real estate agents, architects, veterinarians and funeral homes to contractors and cosmetologists.

This is today, folks. Sorry for the delay in getting this to you but the Florida news does not travel fast to Missouri.
This is your opportunity to directly make input that could affect your future in the home inspection business. Don't wait until the bill reaches the legislature to start sharing your thoughts. Talk to the people as they draft it.
