Re: Bill signed requiring home improvement contractors to display State issued identification badge
P.L. 2013, c.144, will require every contractor registered under the “Contractors’ Registration Act” to have in their possession a state issued identification badge whenever they are performing, engaging or attempting to engage in the business of making or selling home improvements. The badge will include a color photograph of the contractor’s face, the contractor’s name, registration number and business. The badge will include a statement that it is not for an electrical contractor, plumbing contractor or HVACR Contractor license. A contractor will be required to renew their identification badge at least once every six years. The law will take effect on August 19, 2014.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
