On September 18, 2014, SGR Environmental & Sustainability attorney Chris Bowers will appear before the Georgia State Senate Mold and Mildew Remediation Contractor Study Committee as a legal expert to answer questions regarding federal and state law standards governing licensing and certification of mold assessment and remediation contractors. In March of this year, the Georgia State Senate passed Senate Resolution 953, creating the Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to examine the assessment and cleanup of indoor residential mold by professional contractors, and whether any actions or legislation are warranted to safeguard against those who may seek to overstate the scope of the problem, perform excessive or unnecessary remediation, or overcharge citizens for services.
As a legal expert in the subject of Federal and state licensing and certification requirements governing those performing mold assessment, remediation or other mold-related activities, Mr. Bowers was invited by the Committee Chair to appear on September 18, 2014, in order to provide relevant information on this topic and answer questions of Committee members and the interested public. Scheduled participants will include the Director of the Division of Insurance Product Review of the Georgia Commissioner of Insurance Office and other State Senators who are members of the Committee.
