AB 370 Unlicensed contractors. (California)

AB 370 (Eng)

Unlicensed contractors.

AB 370, as amended, Eng. Unlicensed contractors.

Existing law, the Contractors' State License Law, provides for the

licensure and regulation of contractors by the Contractors' State

License Board. Existing law makes it a misdemeanor for a person to

engage in the business or act in the capacity of a contractor without

having a license and makes a first offense punishable by

imprisonment in the county jail for no more than 6 months, or by a

fine not exceeding $1,000, or both. Existing law requires a court to

impose upon a person who has been previously convicted of that

offense a fine of 20% of the price of the contract, as specified, or

$4,500, whichever is greater, and imprisonment in the county jail for

at least 90 days, except as specified. Existing law specifies that a

3rd or subsequent conviction is punishable by a fine of not less

than $4,500 nor more than the greater of $10,000 or 20% of the

contract price or by imprisonment in the county jail, as specified,

or both, and applies those penalty provisions to a person who is

named on a revoked license and is held responsible for the act or

omission resulting in the revocation. Existing law requires a court

to order a defendant convicted of a crime under those provisions, or

under provisions related to the offering or performance of repairs

caused by a natural disaster, to pay restitution to the victim, as

specified.

This bill would make a first conviction punishable by a fine not

exceeding $5,000 or by imprisonment in a county jail for no more than

6 months, as specified, or both. The bill would require that the

fine for a 2nd conviction be the greater of 20% of the price

of the contract price , 20% of the aggregate

payments made to, or at the direction of, the unlicensed contractor,

or $5,000. In addition, the bill would require that a 3rd or

subsequent conviction be punishable by both a fine and imprisonment

in a county jail, as specified, and would require that the fine be no

less than $5,000 and no more than the greater of $10,000, 20% of the

price of the contract price , or 20%

of the aggregate payments made to, or at the direction of, the

unlicensed contractor. By requiring 3rd or subsequent convictions to

be punishable by imprisonment in a county jail, the bill would impose

a state-mandated local program. Under the provisions described

above, the bill would also provide that a person who used the

services of an unlicensed contractor is a victim of crime and

eligible for restitution for economic losses , regardless of

whether that person had knowledge that the contractor was unlicensed.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local

agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the

state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that

reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this

act for a specified reason.


You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. - Winston Churchill
