LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 757, as introduced, Limón. Contractors State License Board.
Existing law, the Contractors State License Law, establishes the Contractors State License Board within the Department of Consumer Affairs and sets forth its powers and duties relating to the licensing and regulation of contractors. Existing law requires the board to receive and review complaints and consumer questions regarding solar energy systems companies and solar contractors and to receive complaints received from state agencies regarding those systems and contractors.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to that provision.
