Issue:  HB 4282 – Licensing for Pool/Spa (Home Improvement Contractors)


Affects:  Has possible implications on who can build a swimming pool.


Bottom Line:  The measure was heard, substituted and passed the House Committee on Regulatory Reform. The substitute removes provisions directly addressing swimming pools. The substitute now only addresses the requirements for a residential maintenance and alteration contractor to receive a license. The measure now awaits a vote on the floor of the House.
