Governor's order extends plumbing license requirement

Posted:

We have a FOX34 Follow-up on state de-regulation of the plumbing industry. 

An executive order from Governor Abbott will require licenses through 2021. The state board of plumbing examiners was set to dissipate September 1.

Lawmakers failed to keep it around during sunset review last month. The board licenses and investigates plumbers and pipe work.

The governor said it's necessary because plumbers are needed to help repair the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey.

Below is our report from a few weeks ago on what the removal of licensing requirements could mean.
