SB 216 - Starting in January 1, 2019, a person who is a roofing contractor or offers services as a roofing contractor in the state of Missouri may register with the Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration. The Department is authorized to promulgate rules and regulations necessary for the administration of this act.
An applicant for registration shall submit a completed application to the Department along with a non-refundable fee of up to two hundred dollars. An applicant has 90 days from the day the application is submitted to complete the application process. In order to receive a certificate of registration an applicant must file proof of motor vehicle insurance, a current worker's compensation policy, and liability insurance. If an out-of-state applicant has had a license revoked or suspended in another state he or she will not be issued a certificate of registration. An out-of-state applicant must also have a no tax due statement from the Department of Revenue before he or she is issued a certificate of registration.
A registered roofing contractor must affix the registration number and the registrant's name to all of his or her contracts and bids. The official issuing building permits must affix the contractor's registration number to each application for a building permit and on each building permit issued and recorded.
Any complaints received by the Department must be recorded, and the Department must investigate all complaints concerning alleged violations of this act. The Department may refuse to issue, renew, suspend, or revoke a certificate of registration for failure to meet the requirements of this act. Any person in violation of the act shall be found guilty of a Class D Misdemeanor. A second conviction within ten years after the first conviction is a Class B Misdemeanor.
This act is similar to HB 425 (2017), HB 1997 (2016), and SB 1022 (2012).
