CSLB Seeks Bills to Reduce Unlicensed Contractor Ads, Strengthen Regulatory Authority

CSLB's Board is supporting new legislation that would provide more tools to help regulate unlicensed contracting. Legislative proposals for 2014, reviewed during the Board's February meeting, are being introduced by lawmakers during the current legislative session.

Business and Professions Code (BPC) section (§)7027.2 and BPC §7110.5 – These two proposals are scheduled to be packaged into one bill. Also, CSLB wants the bill to include a proposal to amend a provision of BPC §7028. (Senator Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, has agreed to carry the legislation.)

BPC §7011.4 – This proposal would provide all CSLB enforcement representatives delegated by the Department of Consumer Affairs director with the authority to issue a written Notice to Appear (NTAs) in superior court to anyone suspected of unlicensed contracting. BPC §7011.4 is scheduled to be included in the Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee's omnibus bill.

You can follow a bill's progress and amendments, or search for legislation of interest, on the Legislative Counsel's legislative information website.
