In June, Gov. Abbott issued an executive order to suspend a law that would’ve abolished the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners and the Plumbing License Law. Gov. Abbott’s order delays the abolition or expiration of the licensing body until disaster needs subside or the issue is addressed by the next legislative session. The Plumbing Board can continue to license and regulate plumbers until May 31, 2021, to give the legislature time to take action. Inspectors must continue to be licensed as a plumber to conduct sewer line inspections and static pressure testing.
