Thanks to all you Home Inspectors who responded to the AAREI “Call to Action” in March to defeat both legislative bills that would have allowed anyone to claim they were professionals in their fields, including home inspectors, to do business and collect fees without having a State of Arkansas License.  We were able to bottle up both bills in committee due to the intense lobbying by your efforts and our coalition partners through the State Chamber of Commerce.  This demonstrates strength of numbers when dealing with the Arkansas Legislature.  We also had Members who were on call to testify to the damage to the public that passage of either bill would have fostered. (See my blog for more details)
