RHODE ISLAND - Licensure


Issue:  HB 5900 – LICENSING


Affects:  Could affect those who build pools ultimately.

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.
