HB504 would establish a permissive certification for highly-qualified, professional interior designers. Additionally, HB504 would allow those who choose to get certified the ability to stamp drawings for permits. As we know, our state produces some of the best educated interior design students in the country, but our laws, unintentionally, impact their right to practice to the fullest extent of their education and training.
HB504 does not require an interior designer to become certified. If an interior design professional chooses not to become certified, then they could continue to practice as they do today.
We need you to let your state representative know why HB504 matters. Take a few moments to complete the form on the right and send a pre-drafted letter to your legislator.
