The conference committee met today at 12:45 with no change, once again, in the mold amendment. It’s a stalemate, which actually now gets bumped up to the budget chairs: Sen. JD Alexander and Rep. Denise Grimsley.
Dan Pollock has done a great job this session on behalf of M.A.R.C. of Florida but there is still work to be done.
We have a need for contributions and emails sent from as many as possible to both Sen. JD Alexander and Rep. Denise Grimsley.
Please email or send the suggested message which is attached.
Your email subject should be “NO to HB 5007”
Dear Sen. JD Alexander and Rep. Denise Grimsley.
As the conference process continues I am writing to you with my concerns regarding HB 5007.
Please do not make changes to the regulations of Mold Assessors and Remediators.
The changes in HB 5007 remove training that is necessary to perform these services correctly. In fact, the removal of such training is contrary to OSHA requirements.
This Act passed virtually unanimously in 2007 and is only now coming into its effective date. Let’s let the law work and give consumers recourse and confidence that they will be working with licensed and trained professionals.
Please oppose this bill.
