…and it appears to be a good one.
In a telephone conference today with members of ASHI, the MAR, and (reluctantly, on their part, I’M sure) myself…Mike Parson of Bolivar introduced an outline of licensing bill that appears to be acceptable.
As we know, licensing is inevitable and if we can get to the table with the big boys, we can make the bill tolerable, at least.
We all agreed that any form of grandfathering would be unfair…what is good for the goose is good for the gander. The exception would be that home inspectors with more than three years in business would NOT have to ride with a licensed/experienced inspectors for 25 inspections.
The NHIE will be the test and the fee will be $200.
There will be a public hearing announced for next week. If I learn more, I’ll pass it on.
