As far as I know. I have the latest version of the bill but have not had a chance to read it over. I'll get to that tonight and post comments.

For your reading enjoyment. There is nothing about grandfathering. Everyone will be on the same page. If you haven't passed the national exam in the last two years you are going to have to take it.
Such crap! I am a CMI and I will essentially have to "start over" and be put on the same level as a new guy.


(C) The superintendent shall issue a license to perform home inspections to applicants who satisfy the requirements set forth in this section, subject to section 4768.14 of the Revised Code. (D) Except as otherwise specified in division (E) of this section, the application shall include all of the following: (1) A pledge the applicant signs, agreeing to comply with the rules adopted by the board pursuant to division (A) (10) of section 4764.05 of the Revised Code; (2) A statement that the applicant understands the grounds

Click on "View current version", then scroll down to page 74 and read section 6.

House Bill 211 - Status | The Ohio Legislature

To the best of my knowledge this version has been revised at least twice, so it's not completely accurate, and will most likely be revised many more times before it's all said and done, but this is the grandfather clause.

HMMM, the version I just got yesterday is different. I have no idea which one is correct. The version I have was sent to me by the State Reps secretary. That's how I was informed of the hearing on Tuesday.

HB211 passed 12-2 to send it to the house floor.

They are hoping to have it voted on in the house in the next 30 day before they break for the primary's

Board of Realtors here have been pushing their membership to contact their politicians to support this bill, even sending them links to send to them. Also in their emails it says that it is important as Ohio Ashi supports the bill. I thought there was supposed to be another vote back on the 11th but haven’t seen anything
