California Contractors Facing New Licenses, Restrictions and Punishments Under Proposed Legislation 
California Senate Bill 1189, which has passed the Senate and is now under review by the Assembly, seeks to eliminate the one-size-fits-all contracting license and create a more transparent process for consumers to ensure their contractor is properly trained. It would create a new classification of contracting known as “residential remodeling contracting.” Under the proposed bill, residential remodeling contractors would be prohibited from performing certain trades, jobs or skills, such as installing fire prevention materials or structures, unless they are properly licensed. Additionally, and of potential interest to NKBA members, residential remodeling contractors would also be prohibited from changing or working on load-bearing portions, electrical systems and plumbing systems. If the bill does pass and is signed by the Governor, it would go into effect at the beginning of next year. Should the bill die in committee, it will likely be reintroduced in the next legislative session. NKBA will continue to monitor and track this piece of legislation through the California Legislature adjournment date of Aug. 31.
