By Scott Williams, Ohio REALTORS Vice President of Public Policy

The top legislative priority of Ohio REALTORS, House Bill 211 sponsored by Representative Hughes, would create a first-ever licensure system for home inspectors. The bill has languished in the House Commerce and Labor Committee for a number of months failing to gain the necessary support for passage.

On Tuesday, Feb. 13 Ohio REALTORS will be issuing an all-member Call for Action targeting the Ohio House of Representatives asking them to pass HB 211. As the 132nd General Assembly winds down we are quickly running out of time to pass this legislation. We have worked diligently with the Ohio Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors and have gained their support for this legislation.

The Ohio REALTORS lobbying team in conjunction with the ASHI representatives continue to meet with members of the House Commerce and Labor Committee trying to gain enough votes to move the bill and we now need your help. It was clear from the onset that this bill would only pass if there was strong grassroots support from the membership directed at the members of the General Assembly. It is now time to demonstrate that support.

Please watch your inboxes for the Call for Action on Tuesday morning and take action to pass this consumer-friendly, important piece of legislation!
