RHODE ISLAND - Licensure
Issue: HB 5900 – LICENSING
Affects: Could affect those who build pools ultimately.
Send comments to: Jennifer Hatfield, firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill Summary: This resolution creates a 17 member special
legislative commission whose purpose it would be to examine the issue of
licensing builders and contractors, and who would report back to the House of
Representatives no later than February 8, 2018, and whose life would expire on
May 8, 2018. If this bill ultimately passes, imperative APSP members
get involved as this could be an avenue to get a recommendation from the
Commission to require licensure of pool builders and service professionals.
Status: Introduced; referred to House Corporations
Committee on March 10.
