M.A.R.C. takes the HB 5007 fight to the Budget Conference


The Senate and House have begun the budget conference process in earnest.

Sen. Dennis Jones and Senator Steve Wise who had originally passed the legislation regarding the Mold Inspection and Remediation licensure statutes have All vowed to help us derail the requirements and the new grandfathering periodHowever we need to keep making contacts with those I listed.  

I  also attach for  you the list of persons on the House and Senate Budget conference Committee and the House Natural Resources committee members  who should also  be contacted at this time.

Please email or send the suggested message which is attached.

The list and contact information is also attached.

SAMPLE LETTER

——————————————

__________, 2011

Dear (insert name from below list here)

As you begin the conference process I am writing to you with my concerns regarding HB 5007.  As a conforming bill, this bill would virtually eliminate the educational requirements for mold remediators and mold assessors.  It would also grandfather mold assessors and remediators for an additional period of time allowing marginally qualified persons, as well as untrained Home Inspectors, to become licensed.

This bill as a streamlining of regulations has never been heard in the senate and leaves home owners and business owners open to the fraud and unprofessional practices experienced until the profession was regulated.  With many drywall problems unresolved, now is not the time to leave the public unprotected.

Please oppose this bill or strike the mold assessor and remediation language from the bill.

Please contact me or Gene Adams at (850) 222-3533, our lobbyist, should you have any questions.

Cordially,
