The licensing Board for Plumbers has been on the books since 1947 in Texas. However, this year the Legislature “sunset” the licensing law as of September 1, 2019.This means there would be no licensing law for plumbers in Texas!

After this happened the Plumbers Association mobilized and got the Governor to issue an Executive Order to extend the licensing law for one more year which will give the association and the legislature time to address the issue and hopefully extend the licensing law indefinitely.

This certainly demonstrates why we stay in close contact and monitor the Georgia Legislature and keep a close eye on everything they do. We support our friendly legislators by donating to their campaigns to keep them in office. These donations are extremely important. If you have not donated recently to the CAAG PAC, please do so.

Thanks to CAAG Past President and Director, Barry Abernathy, from E. Smith Heating & Air Conditioning, for bringing this to our attention.

Editor’s Note: We are fortunate in Georgia to have CAAG watching our backs and keeping us advised about legislative issues. Remember to support our local trade associations.
