I-TEAM Report On Electrical Inspections Getting Results
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An I-TEAM investigation that sparked concerns about the risk of fire in hundreds of homes is getting results.
The I-TEAM found out lawmakers were transferring money from the Department of Labor and Industry to help pay off the state’s debt. The money was supposed to be used for electrical inspections.
In some cases, the I-TEAM’s investigation found unlicensed workers doing electrical work.
State Representative Tim Mahoney introduced a bill Thursday that would stop the transfer of money and get inspections back on track.
