Attorney Ed Nagorsky of the National Kitchen & Bath Association — which opposes California SB 1312, the proposed interior-design bill — is forgetting one major thing (In the News, 6/08): This bill addresses the issue of protecting the customer. Shouldn’t that be our main objective? Our jobs are to provide our clients with the best possible product or service for the money. There is a clear need for this bill. There are way too many people stating they can do something when they clearly can’t. I am sure Mr. Nagorsky would not appreciate it if someone could read an article or take a two-hour seminar and then call himself an attorney. Yet this kind of thing happens all the time in the construction industry, and the ones who suffer are the unsuspecting clients.
