I sure would help the trade if it were so Marty.
The problem seems a "don't touch a slice of my pie" deal , where all the states, counties, and municipalities have set up there own set of standards, and the revenue that follows.
I see a national ticket ( or at least national reciprocity) as a level playing field, and a benchmark to this "qualified" hoo-haa.
I've read a few articles about the big wheels in the trade pointing out that there is going to be a shortage of electricians, and that there are no more in the US than 20 yrs ago.
I'll wager here that the amount of growth in all the bureaucratic, safety, regulating, etc organizations has been exponential in comparison.
So which one will stick up for us? Who's gonna throw this trade a bone here?
After all, the NEC has no problem defining the AHJ in an entire new article #80 ,what's a license? chopped liver?
Don, you and others are probably right in correcting me on this, but I'm not the only one asking, just the loudest.
