HARRISBURG – A House bill (1543) that amends the Pennsylvania Home Improvement Contractor Registration law has passed the Pennsylvania House of Representatives unanimously in late June.
Easier Time and Materials Contracts
The bill clarifies language to make it easier to write time and materials home improve contracts for work covered under the home improvement contractor law.
Fees and Fine Go Back into Program
The bill also directs that all fees and fines generated under the Home Improvement Contractor law must be used to support administration of the law. Now those fees and fines go into the state’s general fund and can be spent on anything.
The bill is now in the Senate for consideration and was referred to the Consumer Affairs and Professional Licensure Committee.
