It has been awhile Tommy , good to see you brother!

IMO the TSBPE is totally responsible for its own demise.

We will be incorporated into the dept. of regulation which may take at least a year for them to develop licensing and regulation requirements. It will all work out.

A responsible master plumber should be the ones determining when apprentices demonstrate journeyman level skills. Not a spend yrs., pay for a test preparation course, pass a test and still not know squat.

Master plumbers should be able to fill out a certification form and send application to proxy test centers located in major cities across the state.

The test should focus on knowledge of plumbing codes. The shop work and doll house plumbing was fun but unnecessary.

It was time to get rid of those useless clowns.

and you dont think the dems would have rolled over even faster, I bet the dems would have added you can be a plumber as an illegal in the country and many other items into law, not just let requirements expire....BS either way, just goes to show you how weak the trades are in politics...

Problem is that the state can't move us over to TDLR until they meet again in two years, this has to be done by the Senate and House, no one else has the authority to do it. So we will have no state code or state licensing for two years. Abbott already stated no special session. Maybe the larger cities will start issuing licenses. It's going to be an interesting two years for sure.

you should come to my state, new york, your head will spin , first no state license, its up to EVERY municipality throughout the state to have their own license and that can break down to county, town ,city and village to issue one..talk about freaking crazy, just to work in all the areas in my county alone you need about 45 plus different licenses and fees, that average from $50 to $300 a year..I figured it out once and it was close to $5000.00 in license fees if I got all the licenses...so dont cry about $600 or so..and each municipality can put their own spin on the codes that the state follows..
