Reasons for HB 108 - Currently a qualified applicant cannot be hired until they have achieved certification as a residential building inspector.  In times of tight employment cities and counties are often forced to turn away qualified candidates due to lack of this certification.  This is a barrier to employment and places hardship on jurisdictions.  The change proposed in HB 39 will allow a six month grace period after hiring to obtain that certification, allowing us to hire qualified individuals and provide on-the-job training.
