No…this is not another April Fools joke and …no…I am not supporting this bill, but it is noteworthy that for the third year in a row, Mr. Parson included wording in his bill that provides for a very generous grandfathering clause.
So did last year’s bill…and the bill before.
And the effect that it has is quite amazing.
Home inspectors who think they will be “grandfathered” and will not have to comply with the requirements remain silent and let the bill run its course.
Then, at the public hearing (as he has done for the last two years), he removes any mention of NACHI at the insistence of the ASHI presidents who appear at the hearing in support of it. Last year, he removed the entire grandfathering provision, totally.
He can do that…and he does it…right when it is too late for all the guys who laid back thinking that the law would not affect them to do anything.
But…for the moment…we can read this bill and point to it as if the State of Missouri is providing equal recognition to all home inspection associations…including NACHI.
Just remember…this clause has never made it past the public hearing, and its been in every bill. Do not be fooled into laying back and thinking that this bill will not affect you, for it will…dramatically.
You can read the entire bill … to include the (temporary) grandfathering clause…at website for The Alliance of Missouri Home Inspectors.
