To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3790), to amend the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, by adding Section 40-11-155 so as to provide that for purposes of reinstatement of a contractor's license, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
J. VERNE SMITH, for Committee.
TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 40-11-155 SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT FOR PURPOSES OF REINSTATEMENT OF A CONTRACTOR'S LICENSE, A PERSON WHO PREVIOUSLY STOOD AND PASSED THE CONTRACTOR'S LICENSING EXAMINATION JOINTLY MUST BE TREATED AS IF HE STOOD AND PASSED THE EXAMINATION INDIVIDUALLY.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Chapter 11, Title 40 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 40-11-155.(A) For purposes of reinstatement of a contractor's license, a person who previously stood and passed the contractor's licensing examination jointly with another person and who has been a contractor as defined in this chapter for at least twelve years must be treated as if he stood and passed the examination individually.
(B) When a corporation, partnership, or other business entity in the contracting business dissolves, a person who remains in the contracting business must take only that portion of the contractor's licensing examination which he has not previously taken and passed."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
