NASCLA ANNOUNCES 2017 NATIONAL COORDINATED ENFORCEMENT EFFORT

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, June 27, 2017

The National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) participated in a national coordinated enforcement effort the weeks of June 5 – 16, 2017 which included 8 NASCLA State Members who took part in this event across the country. The states that participated were Arizona, California, Florida, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah and Washington.

The national coordinated enforcement effort focused on elevating the regulatory boards presence in the community and nationally. The goal of our state members was to come together in a united partnership to promote both consumer and public protection through the licensing and/or registration of contractors. The national coordinated enforcement effort involved state public information departments, investigative departments, executive directors/officers and the public media.

This nationally coordinated collaboration among our state members provided the opportunity to protect the consumers, deter illegal construction activity and level the playing field for legitimate contractors in the construction industry. Along with combating the increased illegal unlicensed activity nationally, the intention was to warn consumers that they need to be aware of these activities for regulatory compliance.

Based on joint coordinated enforcement efforts during the weeks of June 5 – 16, 2017, NASCLA State Members reported a total of 675 individuals who were found non-compliant with state licensing requirements. Arrests, administrative citations, legal actions, and more have been issued to these individuals.

“NASCLA had 8 state members participate in this historic event across the country. The shared commitment of our state members brought awareness to unlicensed activity and spotlighted the contractor state licensing and registration boards nationally. NASCLA would like to thank all the state members for their continued partnership and national enforcement efforts to protect the public and combat unlicensed activity,” stated Angie Whitaker, NASCLA Executive Director.
