MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 13, 2015 01:58 PM
From: Senator Thomas J. McGarrigle
To: All Senate members
Subject: State Licensure of Plumbers
 
I intend to reintroduce Senate Bill 441 of 2013, legislation that creates a state plumbers licensing program. The legislation will establish title protection in that it regulates who can call themselves a state-licensed plumbing contractor rather than who can perform plumbing services.

The legislation will establish minimum standards that individuals must meet in order to obtain a state license. A plumbing contractors licensure board will be created in order to issue licenses, develop regulations, and administer the provisions of the Act. The bill's primary purpose is to protect the public health. At the same time, it will make reciprocity with other states that license plumbers a simple matter.



Introduced as SB703
