On November 1, 2014, the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) submitted its Sunset Review Report to the Legislature. Among other things, the Sunset Review Report highlights select CSLB achievements. It also includes a list and summary of the legislation sponsored by the CSLB from 2011 through 2014, and urges the Legislature and Administration to support efforts to modernize and streamline laws and regulations related to contracting in California to help ease complicated requirements for contractors and confusing language that prevents consumers from making informed choices. Of particular interest, several table summarize licensee-related data, including Table 6 – Licensee Population, Table 7A – Licensing Data by Type, and Table 7b – Total Licensing Data. Section 4 further responds to questions about the CSLB’s licensing program.
The CSLB’s previous sunset review was conducted in 2011; California Senate Bill 543 (Steinberg, Chapter 449, Statutes of 2011) extended CSLB’s sunset date from January 1, 2012 to January 1, 2016.
