It's not a law yet, but here's the grandfather section.

initial member of the Ohio Home Inspector Board is appointed
pursuant to section 4764.04 of the Revised Code, as enacted by

the Superintendent of Real Estate and Professional Licensing

According to Sec. 4764.05.(C) The board shall approve a curriculum of education a person must successfully complete to obtain a license. The board shall approve a curriculum of education that satisfies all of the following requirements:
  1. The curriculum is offered by an accredited public or private institution of higher education or a professional organization that has been approved by the board to offer a curriculum. InterNACHI School is an accredited post secondary education institution accredited by the national accrediting agency of the U.S. Department of Education.
  2. The curriculum includes a requirement that a person, to successfully complete the curriculum, complete at least eighty hours of classroom or online prelicensing instruction, including instruction about compliance with the requirements specified in this chapter, inspection safety, report writing, and any other administrative matters required by the board.

Thank you for contacting Speaker Householder's officeregarding SB 255. Section 101.63 of the bill indicates:

"the speaker of the house of representatives shalldirect a standing committee of the house of representatives to hold hearings toreceive the testimony of the public and of the chief executive officer of theboard, and otherwise to review, consider, and evaluate the usefulness,performance, and effectiveness of the board. Not later than the fifteenth dayof November of that same odd-numbered year, the standing committee shallprepare and publish a report of its findings and recommendations in accordancewith section 101.65 of the Revised Code. If the standing committee's reportincludes a bill, the house of representatives shall consider that bill forpassage by the thirty-first day of December of that same odd-numberedyear".

My recommendation would be to circle back once standingcommittees have been selected to see what committee will be holding thehearings mentioned in the bill. Once you know what committee will be holdingsaid hearings, it will be easy to track any meetings that committee will have.Please let me know if you need this clarified further or contact me with anyother questions you may have. Thank you and have a great day!
