S.F. No. 1533 - Unlicensed Building Activity Criminal Penalties (with Author’s amendment SCS1533A-1)
 
Author: Senator Rich Draheim
 
Prepared By: Carlon D. Fontaine, Senate Counsel (651/296-4395)
 
Date: March 15, 2017



 

S.F. No. 1533 establishes a gross misdemeanor for building activities performed by unlicensed residential contractors, remodelers, or roofers.  The current statute requires residential contractors, remodelers, and roofers to be licensed and prohibits unlicensed individuals from holding themselves out as residential builders, remodelers, or roofers, but does not address activities by those unlicensed individuals.  It is a misdemeanor for non-exempt, unlicensed individuals to hold themselves out as residential contractors, remodelers, or roofers (Minnesota Statutes, section 326B.082, subdivision 16).  The bill would maintain the current misdemeanor and create a separate crime, punishable as a gross misdemeanor, for building activities performed by unlicensed individuals regardless of whether they also held themselves out as residential contractors, remodelers, or roofers.
