CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 304


Introduced by Senator Archuleta

February 03, 2021


An act to amend Section 7048 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to contractors.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 304, as introduced, Archuleta. Contractors: exemptions.
Existing law, the Contractors State License Law, provides for the licensure, regulation, and discipline of contractors by the Contractors State License Board. Existing law exempts from this licensing requirement any work or operation on one undertaking or project, by one or more contracts, when the aggregate contract price does not exceed $500, except when the person performing the work advertises to the public that they are a licensed contractor.
This bill would increase the maximum aggregate contract price eligible for this exemption to $1,000, and make other nonsubstantive changes.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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