HB 1714 has been sent to the Committee of Professional Registration and Licensing for their review. The next step will be for the committee to announce a date for a public hearing.
Missouri inspectors who are not wanting to experience the Kansas debacle are encouraged to keep their calendars flexible so that they can be present to voice their opposition to this bill. It will probably be scheduled for the last week of February or first week of March.
Several House representatives who have opposed the same bill in its same form in previous years have announced their intentions to support it, this year.
The Missouri Association of Realtors have been lobbying for it very hard and are counting on the Missouri inspectors to stay home and remain silent like the majority of Kansas inspectors did.
If circumstances are such that you are, indeed, kept away from this meeting and you still want to participate in fighting the bill that day, send me an email at email@example.com . Absence plus silence equals support for the efforts of the Missouri Association of Realtors to run your company.
