Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 2062 would require individuals working on rainwater harvesting systems to be licensed plumbers.

Analysis: HB 2062 would represent an unnecessary increase in regulations that would act as a barrier to entry for individuals. Adding restrictions to occupations limits the number of individuals who are able to earn a living performing that task. HB 2062 is an example of protectionist legislation designed to prop up professional plumbers. We recommend against this bill.
