The Ohio House of Representatives will be convening a lame duck session this Wednesday, November 14th and supporters of the Certified Interior Design Bill (HB 504) are pushing hard for the bill to come to the House floor for a vote. Now is the time to make your voice heard!
The current version of the bill completely fails to address the concerns of AIA Ohio architects.
HB 504 would:
- require local building departments to accept submittals from certified interior designers without an architect's seal.
- create the Ohio Interior Design Examiners Board and allow it to define the practice of interior design without the oversight or approval of the Ohio Architects Board.
In its current form, HB 504 raises significant concerns for health, safety, and welfare of the public.
