Connecticut Steps Up Penalty for Unlicensed Work
By Tami Faram
Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell has signed a new law that increases penalties for unlicensed contractors, including glass workers, who operate businesses in the state.
The bill "Concerning the Protection of Consumers from Unlicensed Contractors, Criminal Simulation and the Resale of Tickets to Entertainment Events" became effective July 5.
Section 1 of the new law protects Connecticut citizens from people who operate businesses without a license by increasing penalties for certain occupations who are found guilty of such a practice. The practice is also classified as a misdemeanor.
The occupations noted in the new law include flat glass and automotive glass workers, plumbers, electricians, solar technicians, heating, piping and sprinkler system workers.
