An act to repeal and add Section 7110 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to contractors.

[ Approved by Governor  July 09, 2021. Filed with Secretary of State  July 09, 2021. ]


AB 246, Quirk. Contractors: disciplinary actions.
Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of contractors by the Contractors State License Board (board). Under existing law, willful or deliberate disregard by a licensed contractor of various state building, labor, and safety laws constitutes a cause for disciplinary action by the board.
This bill would reorganize these provisions and would add illegal dumping to the list of violations that constitute a cause for disciplinary action against a contractor by the board.
