I read somewhere that the Idaho Electrical Board is considering a program that would allow some electrical contractors to self-certify their installations for electrical code compliance. On the surface, it seemed to me like it might offer a little too much leeway and could potentially be abused. But according to them, it would also free up inspectors to focus on licensing compliance efforts. What's your take on that? Good thing/bad thing?

I think New York City tried this & it definitely doesn't work.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

I just got back from 2 weeks in Idaho and it appears there is no permitting or inspection at all for huge parts of the state.
You see signs when you get to cities that say "building permits required here".
