    TACLA local handyman

    Hi, I'm new here.
    I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section.

    Im trying to replace my water heater.
    is it safe to hire a local handyman to do a water heater replacement?
    the business card says LIC#: TACLAXXXXXE.
    I have searched for the license number at texas.gov and I have found it. it is not expired.

    thank you for your help.

    That’s a class “a” air conditioning contractors license. Probably can do the job but should be a licensed plumber do it. They may have a plumbing license also

    Starting September 1, virtually anyone could become a plumber in Texas. This comes after lawmakers got rid of a state board that issues and regulates licenses for plumbers to perform work. The Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners is responsible for issuing licenses and enforcing the state's plumbing code. The agency was up for a routine Sunset review process by lawmakers, who assess its efficiency and organization periodically and determine whether certain agencies should be eliminated. Lawmakers were looking to amend the process of how plumbers can get their licenses, but instead two bills filed during the 86th legislative session failed to pass. The bills would have extended the board's life. Senate Bill 621 said that the State's Sunset Advisory Commission recommended transferring the licensing duties to the Texas Dept. of Licensing and Regulation. However, the bill did not pass and the board was abolished as a statute.

    Don't ask me, I have no idea, I don't do ANY politics, I just posted this information for Messi. Heck I have a rich wife now to spend my days with, I have a hard enough time just keeping up with her business, and taking all the deposits to the bank.
