This is an interesting read.

Reforming Occupational Licensing Policies

https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content...aper_final.pdf

Regulation starts out simple then branches to a myriad of rules. For example.

1 - Inspector needs 16 hours of CEU
2 - Inspector shall state in their application that they have those hours and provide them if requested
3 - Any home inspection seminar or technical class is approved.

I am going to visit with my start rep next week show him some of the things they are doing to us and see if he has any influence with sunset commission. I know he will listen to what I have to say and not brush it off. Sometimes knowing someone has its benefits and I also know his mom. On second thought Mary I should tell her and she talk to Drew. I’ll post what happens

I spoke to my state rep yesterday and Drew is familiar with the sunset commission. He has testified before them and is willing to go before them on our behalf. He liked the idea of the tdlr and said the person heading it up is a good guy. I need some precise and to the point material to give him concerning our problems with TREC If you could post them or email them to me I will put them together and get them to him. Hope this will help

I am writing a paper now. May take a month or so but we have time. TREC is reading this forum to prepare their position.
