    Interesting.

    The best part of the bill in my opinion are the following points:

    - Supporters said, however, that the bill was needed to protect homeowners from shoddy inspections.
    - HB 2315 would set standards for home inspectors and allow homeowners to sue inspectors for up to $10,000.
    - It also would create a five-member Kansas Home Inspectors Registration Board and require inspectors to be registered. The board could revoke registrations if it received a complaint against an inspector.
    - Now, inspectors are not required to be licensed by the state.
    - Three board members would be inspectors, the fourth a real estate agent or broker and the fifth a member of the public.

    Fail to understand this comment:

    - He said the requirement exposing the inspector to $10,000 in liability would raise inspection costs. Moriconi’s company charges a minimum of $225 for a home inspection.

    How would that increase the cost of an inspection? I wish I could cap my liability to $10K.

    The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
