HB12-1319 - Local Inspectors For School Plumbing & Electric

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning Building Inspections Relating To Utilities.

Under current law, electrical and plumbing inspections of school buildings must be performed by state inspectors even though the school building is located in a town, city, or county that has a building department that inspects buildings. The bill removes this requirement, allowing local departments to perform electrical and plumbing inspections of school buildings within their jurisdictions.

The bill requires local governments to utilize journeymen or master plumbers when contracting for plumbing inspections within their respective jurisdictions, and requires a local government to reimburse the state examining board of plumbers (state board) if the local government fails to timely notify the state board of its intent to commence or cease local plumbing inspections.

State and local electrical and plumbing inspectors shall inspect to the standards specified in the state electrical and plumbing codes.
