Licensing of nonresidents
SECTION 1. Section 40-79-150 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

To the extent that other states which provide for licensing of alarm system businesses provide for similar action for persons of this State, the board, in its discretion, may grant a license to a nonresident who holds a valid license of the same type from another state upon satisfactory proof furnished to the board that the standards of licensure in the other state are at least substantially equivalent to those prevailing in this State. However, a nonresident may not be granted a license to operate his alarm system business in this State unless his state of principal residence also permits similar licensing of residents of this State. Applicants shall make application to the board on the form prescribed by the board for all applicants, shall comply with the provisions of Section 40-79-80, and shall pay any fee required of applicants."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
