On June 6, 2007, Marilyn Roberts, the President of the Texas
Association for Interior Design, emailed her members asking for examples of public harm
due to unregulated interior design. Two years later a reporter with KXAN-TV in
Austin asked Ms. Roberts if she could give a single example.
-Are there any examples in Texas where
there has been some sort of a safety problem because somebody that wasn’t a licensed designer
designed? -Actually there are not things that I can document right now.
-So even after two years of searching Marilyn Roberts and her friends couldn’t find
a single case of public harm from the unregulated practice of interior design.
