Washington Inspectors: Public Hearing Tomorrow on HB 1371

Washington state licensed inspectors,

There will be a public hearing tomorrow morning at the State Capitol ref. HB 1371 - 2011-12 - a bill to eliminate boards and commissions. The hearing is to be held in the House Committee on State Government & Tribal Affairs at 8:00 AM.

Due to the current economic crisis in the state of Washington, the Governor has proposed to eliminate many boards and commissions. One of these is the Washington State Home Inspectors Advisory Licensing Board. Under this bill, the state’s board will cease to exist after 2013 and all decisions pertaining to rules governing home inspectors would then be vested solely in the Director Department of Licensing.

Washington licensed inspectors that can’t attend the hearing but wish to voice their approval or disapproval of the governor’s decision should contact Kelly A. Wicker, Executive Policy Advisor & Special Assistant for External Affairs, Office of Governor Gregoire.

Ms. Wicker can be reached at 360.902.0574; 360.584.5467(Cell); 360.586.8380 (Fax) or via email to Kelly.wicker@gov.wa.gov.
