Current Bill Summary

SCS/SBs 153 & 117 - Starting January 1, 2021, a person who is a roofing contractor or offers services as a roofing contractor in the state of Missouri may register with the Division of Professional Registration.

An applicant for registration shall submit a completed application to the Division along with a non-refundable fee of up to $200. 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 shall 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 shall not be issued a certificate of registration. An out-of-state applicant shall also have a no tax due statement from the Department of Revenue before he or she is issued a certificate of registration.

Liability insurance shall be for not less than $1,000,000. If a registered roofing contractor is found to be operating without proper insurance the contractor's certificate of registration shall be suspended until the contractor furnishes proof of insurance to the Division. Additionally, such contractor may be required to report proof of such insurance to the Division quarterly for two consecutive years.

No political subdivision of the state shall require a roofing contractor to be registered under the act in order to operate as a roofing contractor within the boundaries of such political subdivision. No political subdivision of the state shall require the inspection of a roof more than one time if the cost to construct or repair such roof is less than $10,000.

A registered roofing contractor shall affix the registration number and the registrant's name to all of his or her contracts and bids.

The Division shall maintain a list of registered roofing contractors on its website. Inclusion on the list does not constitute an endorsement by the Division.

Up to 80% of the funds in the Roofing Contractor Fund shall be used to advertise to the public the existence of the registry of roofing contractors in the state.

Any complaints received by the Division shall be recorded, and the Division shall investigate all complaints concerning alleged violations of this act. The Division 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.

The provisions of this act expire on August 29, 2024.

This act is substantially similar to SB 117 (2019), HB 170 (2019), and SCS/SB 790 (2018).
