2012 House Bill 5325: Exempt residential repair trades from state licensure mandates
  1. Introduced by Rep. Ray Franz (R) on January 31, 2012, to exempt individuals and contractors who do home and commercial rehabbing, and those in certain building trades, from licensure mandates currently imposed by the state (or ones that have been proposed). Homebuilders would still be subject to licensure, but those who make a living doing home and commercial structure carpentry, concrete work, swimming pool installation, basement waterproofing, excavation, insulation, masonry, painting and decorating, roofing, siding and gutters, screen or storm sash installation, tile and marble work, garage building and house wrecking would be specifically exempted. Individuals who buy, rehab and sell "fixer-uppers" for a profit also would be exempt.
    • Referred to the House Regulatory Reform Committee on January 31, 2012.

 Great idea!  This is a start in the right direction.  State licensure only insures that the state makes a fee and that fewer and fewer people go into that field.  Now how about movers and manicurists ...
