Nowhere in the statute related to wind mitigation inspections (627.711) is the term “WCE” or “wind certification entity” mentioned. “WCE’s” or “wind certification entities” were born or created by non elected government bureaucrats and special interest lobbyists to provide favor for a select few companies while circumventing the statute. This crony capitalism was accomplished through these unelected officials making “rules” or “policy” outside or over and above the enabling statute. As many of you know, the statute clearly spells out who is licensed and authorized to conduct wind mitigation inspections. I do not believe that "WCE’s are one of the entities listed in the statute. Consequently, to gain market share, the WCE’s have colluded with the unelected bureaucrats to develop language in their polices and/or rules to provide favor to the select few. The language in this proposed bill seeks to codify this special favor in the statute.
NACHI may have tried to become a WCE and may have gotten push back from some members. I guess some may go with the "if you can’t beat them- join them mentality. From where I sit, I do not want any WCE with their hand in my wallet or their boot on my head forcing me to work for them just for the privilege of doing a wind mitigation inspection -(That would include NACHI).
