LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2486, Baker. Contractors’ State License Board: license search by location.
The Contractors’ State License Law provides for the licensure and regulation of contractors by the Contractors’ State License Board, which is within the Department of Consumer Affairs. Existing law requires the board to appoint a registrar and requires the registrar, as specified, to publish a list of the names and addresses of contractors registered under that law.
This bill would require the board, prior to January 1, 2019, to add an enhancement to the current contractor license check search function that would permit consumers to search for a licensed contractor by either ZIP Code or geographic location.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 7018 is added to the Business and Professions Code, to read:

7018.
 Prior to January 1, 2019, the board shall add an enhancement to the current contractor license check search function that permits consumers to search for a licensed contractor by either ZIP Code or geographic location.
