Final Results of Last Sunset Review

Senate Bill 621, the bill that contained the Sunset Commission’s statutory recommendations for the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners, including continuing the regulation of plumbing, did not pass during the 86th Legislative Session.  While the Senate and House both passed different versions of the bill, the Legislature was unable to reconcile the differences between the versions during the final days of the legislative session, and according to the Plumbing License Law, the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners was scheduled to be abolished and the law to expire September 1, 2019.  However, on June 13, 2019, Governor Abbott issued Executive Order No. GA-06 to suspend the abolishment of the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners and Chapter 1301, Texas Occupations Code, until May 31, 2021.
