SB 568 - This act establishes licensure requirements for electrical contractors.
The act establishes the Missouri Electrical Industry Licensing Board vested with the power to grant, rescind or otherwise punish licensees under their jurisdiction. The board may waive the certification requirements for certain electrical contractors who were licensed locally before the enactment of this act. The act requires all electrical contracting firms to employ at least one licensed electrical contractor.
A political subdivision may opt-out of requiring contractors in that subdivision to obtain any license, and may retain their own licensing standards. However, persons holding a statewide license shall be allowed to practice anywhere regardless of any local licensing standards
Any violation of this act may subject the individual to criminal and civil penalties.
This act is similar to SB 1243 (2006).
