NORTHWEST HVAC/R ASSOCIATION & TRAINING CENTER
204 E. Nora Ave, Spokane, WA 99207
UPDATE as of 2/19/2014
House Bill # 2500- LIKELY TO NOT PASS If passed this new law will require a completion of a four year apprenticeship program to become a Journeyman or Residential electrician. If passed, it will only be a matter of time before the same law trickles down to all specialty electricians. If they do not hear from business and their employees this bill will become law!
House Bill #2323- DID NOT PASS Full labor has opposed this bill that would no longer require electricians to display their licenses. . If they do not hear from business and their employees this bill will NOT become law and we will continue with displaying licenses. Only legal electricians are getting fined for not displaying their licenses, the underground is still underground! This law has no impact on catching those that work without a license. IN MARCH 2014 THE INDUSTRY WILL REQUEST EMERGENCY RULE MAKING TO THE GOVERNOR AND LABOR & INDUSTRIES TO REMOVE THE REGULATION THAT MADATES THE DISPLAY OF LICENSING- YOUR VOICE AND EMAILS WILL BE NEEDED TO GET THIS REQUEST APPROVED.
HBl #2275 & SB 6037- LIKELY TO NOT PASS. If passed this new law will allow whistleblowers of electrical companies to remain unanimous even if their claim is found unwarranted. Businesses have testified in opposition to this bill as each complaint filed could cost thousands of dollars in legal fees.
