Bill Description: House Bill 503 would exempt nonprofit organizations and their volunteers from electrical, plumbing, and HVAC licensure requirements when they construct single-family residences. 

Rating: +1

Does it transfer a function of the private sector to the government? Examples include government ownership or control of any providers of goods or services such as the Land Board’s purchase of a self-storage facility, mandatory emissions testing, or pre-kindergarten. Conversely, does it eliminate a function of government or return a function of government to the private sector?

House Bill 503 would amend sections 54-1016, 54-2602, and 54-5002, Idaho Code, to create exemptions from "certificate of competency requirements" for "a nonprofit organization and its volunteers" performing electrical, plumbing, and HVAC installations respectively for a "single-family dwelling unit."

These are the same types of exemptions that apply to homeowners doing such work on their own homes.
