We are thrilled to share the good news from the Texas Association of Interior Designers (TAID). With the concerted efforts of their board, their members, and their lobbyists, the Governor of the State of Texas has signed into law HB 1657/SB 2187, which extends the exam requirement for Registered Interior Designers in Texas (RID) for another ten years. It had been set to expire this legislative session.

If you are not already a member, please consider joining TAID. It’s mission:

  • To promote the common interest of the industry
  • Effectively communicate concerns to government
  • Provide information and education to members
  • Protect the Health, Safety and Welfare of the Public

They run a tight budget, and could benefit from your support, just as you benefit from their legislative interventions, and we all benefit from the protections to public safety and welfare. For the past five legislative sessions, they have helped to rebuff efforts to deregulate the industry. One way to support TAID is to join us at the TAID Lot 75 Art Sale on September 28 @ 5:30 to 7:30pm in our show room.

Do you know who your legislators are? And where they stand on these important issues? We’d like to thank the Governor Greg Abbott, as well as the sponsors of HB1657/SB2187:
