Texas PC Repair Now Requires PI License

From its Texas Rangers to its enthusiastic take on the death penalty, the Lone Star State has long been known for its aggressive stance on law enforcement. Thanks to a strange new law, itís a sting that may soon be felt by a number of the stateís computer-repair people.



A recently passed law requires that Texas computer-repair technicians have a private-investigator license, according to a story posted by a Dallas-Fort Worth CW affiliate.



In order to obtain said license, technicians must receive a criminal justice degree or participate in a three-year apprenticeship. Those shops that refuse to participate will be forced to shut down. Violators of the new law can be hit with a $4,000 dollar fine and up to a year in jail, penalties that apply to customers who seek out their services.

That is ridiculous.



Guess they should make the same requirement for auto mechanics.

Good thing I don't live in Texas. I'm about to start a computer repair and home networking business.

This means more revenue for the State and that is what they are probably looking at. I'd be willing to bet this is a seperate class of license from the regular PI license. The State of Texas looks at government just as a another business these days and are always looking for increased revenues via these shenanaigans.
