HB735 Unintended Consequences – CILB is Resolving – Donations Needed!!!

Posted on Oct 11 in Member Blog

Good Morning Membership,

As of October 2023 the Association has spent $47,500 fighting the unintended consequences of HB735. Construction Industry Licensing Board is working on the Grandfathering language and development of other Specialty Licenses to undo the unintended consequences, however we still have some more work to do. We will have approximately 4 more meetings to attend and possible additional legislative work in 2024.

Our Association is small and is difficult for us to absorb the cost, however the Board understood it had no choice but to budget the money on something so impactful to not only our locally licensed contractors but a great deal of other’s as well.

So, while I am happy to say we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, the Save A Dock fund balance is getting low. We can only sustain about 3-4 more months and we will be out of funding for the fight. I am asking you to please donate to the Save A Dock fund so that we can replenish the account, as well as have enough money to see this fight to the end!

If you have questions or would like to donate via a credit card, please call me at 904-553-5189!

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Kelly White
Executive Director
