There are things that really bug me about this rule.
#2, where is the manpower going to come from to enforce this rule?
Enforcement (for now) will depend on someone turning you in, the homeowner, a neighbor, your competition etc.
Once the complaint has been filed they will be obligated to investigate and levy the fines etc. I expect them to make an example of a few unlucky Joes and expect the rest to fall in line.
I also foresee the states and counties grabbing a piece of the pie through permitting, random inspections and enforcement ... I believe that will be the next logical step.
Sorry Carl, you are reading it right, Government, like large Corporations, act without CONSCIENCE. Their first line to you will be "ignorance of the law is no excuse"...
